KAMLOOPS – CUPE support workers at Thompson Rivers University (TRU) are featured on digital billboards on Highway 5 and on local buses this month as part of a campaign to raise public awareness about the varied services that students and the campus community rely on.

“CUPE 4879 is so proud of our members and the excellent services they provide,” said CUPE 4879 President Lois Rugg. “Our work is integral for post-secondary students to earn their certificates, diplomas, degrees, and apprenticeships – benefitting everyone in the community.”

CUPE 4879 represents 600 support staff at TRU in Kamloops and at the Williams Lake campus. These workers provide a wide variety of services including administration, bookstore staff, course editors, marketing and events, grounds, IT, library, student support, and utilities, to name a few.
