Workers’ voice in politics, government and community.

CUPE members are an important part of our communities. As citizens with a stake in public services, they want and deserve a say in the decisions that affect their neighbours, friends and family.

By being active in municipal, provincial and federal politics, CUPE can achieve positive change for our members and all Canadians.

We do this work every day, not just during elections. We defend the interests of workers at the bargaining table and in society to ensure our voices are heard. We talk and work with political leaders, coalitions and community partners, and all Canadians to make our communities better places to live. 

We work closely with the New Democratic Party to make sure governments hear the voice of Canadian workers. As a founding partner in the NDP, we are a vital part of our democracy.
