The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) is Canada’s largest union. A strong and democratic union, CUPE is committed to improving the quality of life for workers in Canada. Women and men working together to form local unions built CUPE. They did so to have a stronger voice – a collective voice – in their workplace and in society as a whole. Together they have won the right to negotiate their wages and working conditions; to stop arbitrary action by employers; and to speak out without fear of reprisal.
With around 600 000 members across Canada, CUPE represents workers in health care, education, municipalities, libraries, universities, social services, public utilities, transportation, emergency services and airlines. CUPE members are service-providers, white-collar workers, technicians, labourers, skilled trades people and professionals. More than half of CUPE members are women. About one-third are part-time workers. CUPE is a modern, dynamic and sophisticated union with more than 70 offices across the country. Workers, united through CUPE, have the clout and expertise to deal with the growing complexities of our global economy. The CUPE voter's guide is a useful tool to compare the platforms of the four major parties. It covers issues like health care, cities, child care, women and a whole lot more. Compare the platforms and remember to vote positive, vote public. Trustees act as internal auditors. The primary duty of Trustees is to uncover any fraud or misuse of union funds. The secondary function of Trustees is to review the way that the Secretary-Treasurer is doing his or her job and to suggest ways that the financial affairs of the local could be improved. CUPE is opposed to services being delivered by the lowest bidder. The drive towards the lowest bid is a “race to the bottom” for public sector workers and the services they provide. This document is designed to help CUPE members fight against competitive bidding and resist this renewed attempt by employers to wring concessions from them.
