CUPE and the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions - CUPE are mourning the loss of Paul Barry, who served as OCHU’s first president upon its founding in 1982.Paul Barry began his career as a paramedic, based out of the Ajax-Pickering Hospital. During the 1981 round of provincial hospital bargaining, he served as a representative for the Greater Toronto Area on CUPE’s central bargaining committee. A staunch believer in workers’ right to strike, he became a key leader in a 10-day illegal walkout by 14,000 hospital workers when CUPE defied an order to stop the strike and return to work.OCHU was founded following the 1981 walkout with Paul Barry serving as the inaugural president from 1982 to 1987. He was an outstanding advocate for wage equality for women and a progressive voice within CUPE and the broader labour movement.
