CUPE is the union that saves jobs and protects public services. We’re also the union that improves wages and working conditions and fights for a workplace where your health and safety is protected, free from racism and harassment, where there is job security and equity for all.
With more than one half million members, CUPE is the largest union in Canada, representing sisters and brothers across the country in major centres and rural communities, working for large employers and small. And as a member of CUPE, you’re also a member of the 2.2 million-strong Canadian Labour Congress.
But our strength lies in more than our numbers. It is our commitment to democracy, equality and solidarity that gives us the power to defend our members and the public interest.
A CUPE contract is the best on-the-job protection you can have. And an active and strong CUPE – locally, provincially and nationally – is the best advocate for our rights and our needs as workers and as citizens.
