More than 400 employees of British Columbia’s SkyTrain and Southern Rail systems have voted to become the newest members of the CUPE family.

Members of the Independent Canadian Transit Union (ICTU) Local 7 voted by a two-thirds margin to join CUPE.

“This is an historic step for SkyTrain and Southern Rail employees,” said Rob Hewitt, President of the new CUPE Local 7000. “CUPE has a proud tradition as a strong and independent union - a tradition much like our own.”
