Who we are
All Edmonton Public Schools Support Staff work in a unionized environment; the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 3550. The mandate of our union is to uphold and defend our Collective Agreement, represent and support our members and to promote economic and social justice for members and for all workers. In carrying out our work, we strive to promote our core values which include the principles of solidarity, equality, democracy, integrity, and respect.
We are committed to mobilizing our energy and skills to work together to promote these values and to attain these goals in our union, our communities, and globally.
Nationally, CUPE is committed to creating a union which is inclusive, welcoming, and free from harassment, discrimination and all types of bullying and intimidation. We strive to ensure we provide a safe environment for members, staff and elected officers to carry out our work. CUPE’s expectation is that mutual respect, understanding and co-operation will be the basis of all our interaction.

It’s going to take all of us speaking up and refusing to back down. The best way for you to help right now is to help stop Kenney’s budget. Over 10,000 Albertans have signed onto the petition against Kenney’s budget. Add your voice today. It’s not OK for Jason Kenney...
