Mark Hancock was elected CUPE’s 6th National President in November 2015, following two terms as President and four terms as Secretary-Treasurer of CUPE BC.

Mark became a CUPE member in 1984, and served fifteen years as President of Local 498 representing Port Coquitlam Municipal Employees.

Mark knows that our greatest asset as a union is the breadth and diversity of our members and the strength of our local unions.

Mark believes CUPE and the labour movement have a pivotal role to play in defending workers’ rights and building a fairer and more inclusive economy for everyone in the post-pandemic world.
