First and Only Union So Honoured

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 22, 2010) - The Association of Management, Administrative and Professional Crown Employees of Ontario (AMAPCEO) has again been named as one of the Greater Toronto Area's Top Employers, it was announced today in The Globe and Mail

This is the fifth year in a row that AMAPCEO has been named to the GTA Top Employer list. The first and only union to be identified as a top employer, AMAPCEO represents 11,000 public sector employees in every region of the province and in ten cities outside Canada. 

AMAPCEO President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Gannage used the opportunity of the GTA award announcement to extend congratulations to the Ontario Public Service, which employs most of AMAPCEO's members, for also being selected as a top 2011 employer. He noted that "it is the combination of contributions from employees, their bargaining agents and their managers that help make a top employer".
