Indigenous Committee

Indigenous Committee

CUPE BC’s Indigenous Committee was established to provide information, awareness and education to Indigenous CUPE members in the province, and to the CUPE BC executive and membership as a whole. The Committee promotes awareness of our issues, supports events, plans gatherings, and brings forward resolutions to the annual CUPE BC convention.

We continue to work with the Provincial and National CUPE executive boards to include awareness training in all education materials and to ensure that we recognize and acknowledge all Indigenous Nations on whose territory we reside.
