CUPE 458 welcomes campground workers

CULTUS LAKE—CUPE 458 welcomes 23 new members who work at Sunnyside Campground in Cultus Lake. The workers voted to join CUPE in a Labour Board vote counted on July 8.

CUPE 458 President Darlene Worthylake warmly welcomes this group of workers, noting that they first tried to join CUPE ten years ago.

“I am so excited that our local is now able to tuck this group of workers under our wing and work with them to improve their working conditions,” said Worthylake. “They will now have a voice on the job.”

These new members run the campground store, do custodial and maintenance work, take reservations, and keep beaches and campgrounds clean and accessible.

A popular camping area, Sunnyside Campground has more than 370 seasonal camping sites and about 265 overnight sites on a 65-acre property lined with beaches on a large, freshwater lake surrounded by mountains. It is owned and operated by the Cultus Lake Park Board.

CUPE 458 also represents more than 500 members who are municipal workers providing services to the District of Kent, District of Hope, Hope Recreation, Fraser Valley Regional District, Cultus Lake Parks Board, City of Chilliwack, and the Village of Harrison Hot Springs.
