Your local union building is about to begin!
In the coming weeks, we’ll begin the process of building your local union. In the mean time, a team of CUPE staff representatives are in place to help you deal with urgent questions and workplace issues (firstname.lastname@example.org).
CUPE staff will now request the charter for your local union from CUPE National. The charter is recognition that your local is now part of CUPE. The basic structure and governance of chartered locals is established in Appendix B of the CUPE National Constitution. Beyond that, you can build on the constitution to tailor the structure of your local to your own needs by creating bylaws.
To help us prepare for this next stage of helping you build your local union, tell us what’s important to you by using this survey!
