What we do

CUPE members work in every support role within the public school system from helping children arrive at school (bus drivers and crossing guards) to supporting students in the system (student supervisor, education assistants, indigenous support workers) to keeping schools clean and safe (custodians, maintenance and trades) through the clerical functions (payroll, bookkeeping, record keeping, accounting, secretarial in schools, resource centres and district offices).
