Legal BranchCUPE Legal protects CUPE. Locals. Leadership. Members. Staff.

The Legal Branch consists of a Director, over 20 lawyers employed across the country and four WSIB paralegals in Ontario – all of whom are supported by hardworking administrative staff in each of their offices. We work as advocates in every region and at the National Office, appearing in court, arbitration hearings, labour boards and other tribunals on behalf of CUPE, its locals and members. We support the National Officers, Locals, staff and members on a day-to-day basis, providing strategic legal advice and legislative analysis. We also provide education and training to members and staff.
