CALGARY – Almost 180 school support workers at Foothills School Division will merge their staff association into CUPE.

The employees, including Educational Assistants, clerical, technical and library staff, sought to join CUPE feeling their employer did not respect their association or their collective agreement.  The members voted 66% in favour of the merger.

The employees join 7,500 other CUPE members from the K-12 sector in Alberta.  CUPE represents more school district employees in the province than any other union.
