Professional. Accountable. Member-focused.
The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) is Canada’s largest union with approximately 600,000 members, and is the largest union in Saskatchewan representing over 29,000 members.
Members make the decisions, set the policies and elect members to leadership positions.
Throughout Canada, CUPE represents workers in a variety of public sector occupations. From Licensed Practical Nurses to librarians, educational assistants to lifeguards, care home workers to city road maintenance and administration, laundry workers to university teaching assistants, maintenance to x-ray technicians, legal aid to human rights. Our members are as diverse as the public services they deliver.
What can a union do for me?
Across the country, CUPE members are doing important work, providing vital public services around the clock. And where you find CUPE members, you'll also see the big impact their union has made on wages, benefits and working conditions - and the quality of life in the communities where they live.
Joining a union makes a big difference for workers.
YOU have access to professional representation and experienced representatives that can provide trustworthy and timely advice.
YOU have more rights and better benefits found in your collective agreement that exceed the minimum standard by law - rights workers otherwise simply would not have.
YOU are also less likely to suffer harassment or discrimination. They have more rights, get more respect and their workplaces are safer.
As a union member, YOU have more control over your working conditions.
Saskatchewan people are better off with unions, earning $5.28 more per hour on average than their non-union counterparts and contributing over $26.1 million each and every week to the provincial economy, according to a new study released by the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC). The study also reveals that women greatly benefit from union membership, earning on average $15,000 more per year full-time compared to women who were not union members.[Aug 29, 2012 05:16 PM]
