The Social Services Division was created in 2007. It represents over 20,000 members drawn from five OPSEU/SEFPO sectors: Sector 2 (Developmental Services), Sector 4 (Children’s Aid Societies), Sector 7 (BPS Corrections), Sector 15 (Children’s Treatment) and Sector 5 (Community Agencies). Owing to government amalgamations within the BPS, it was felt important to create and co-ordinate communication and campaigns among these five sectors.
The Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) is a Crown corporation of the Ontario government which purchases and retails beverage alcohol through more than 660 retail stores and some 210 agency stores. It is the proven safest, most cost-effective, convenient and socially responsible way to sell alcohol. Net income from LCBO sales goes to the province in the form of an annual dividend to help pay for vital public services, including health care, education and infrastructure.
OPSEU/SEFPO represents many thousands of members working in the province’s 24 colleges of applied arts and technology. They are divided among three divisions, with each division having its own collective agreement: College Faculty (CAAT-A), College Support Full-Time (CAAT-S) and Support Staff Part-Time.
