Clarence S. Dungey (1935 - ) is a labour organiser, environmentalist, community volunteer, tradesman, and author. Dungey was born in Timmins, Ontario; he is of Métis, Scottish and French descent, and is a member of the Woodland Métis Tribe in Northern, Ontario. Dungey has a national profile in Canadian labour, having served for over fifty-three years in the labour movement in regional, provincial and national positions.
Among many notable accomplishments in organized labour, Dungey has served as CUPE provincial director (Ontario) dealing with regressive labour legislation; CUPE provincial strike coordinator (Ontario); Chair, Municipal Committee, Congress of Union Retirees of Canada; Trustee, Joint Board of Trustees, CUPE Employees Pension Plan; a national representative with CUPE; and President of the Sault Ste. Marie and District Labour Council. He has written and lectured on labour relations, labour law, negotiations and arbitration procedures, and occupational health and safety issues at conferences, colleges, and universities. Dungey is a certified high-voltage transmission lineman, steeple-jack, and iron worker. As a practising environmentalist, he was the first private citizen allowed by Ontario courts to present charges and information which led to the closure of Copper-Core Mines for discharging material into Silver Creek and in Lake Superior, and for impairing those waters.
Dungey continues to serve in organized labour as the media officer for CUPE Local 503, which represents the employees of the City of Ottawa.
