CUPE National Representatives are the first line of help for local officers in all matters relating to operations and governance issues in running a local. They offer leadership and guidance for your bargaining team, and facilitate access to the broad range of services available in the union.

In local matters, which require assistance from other CUPE specialists (organizing, legal, research, communications and education), the national rep will refer the local officer to the correct branch or department to ensure that the assistance needed is offered.

The following materials are offered to local officers to help them with the daily operations of their local and to assist them in compliance with respect to the CUPE bylaws and labour regulations.
