CUPE represents approximately 26,000 support workers and education assistants in B.C.'s public schools. 

We are the largest union for school support workers in B.C.'s K-12 sector.

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 (noon-hour supervisors, education assistants, cultural workers) to keeping schools clean and safe (custodians, maintenance and trades) through the clerical functions (such as payroll, bookkeeping, record keeping, accounting, secretarial in schools, resource centres and district offices).
