CUPE Ontario’s mission is to advance the lives of 290,000 members all across Ontario, both at work and in their communities, by mounting campaigns for political mobilization, facilitating the coordination of collective bargaining, and fighting for social justice, equality, and against all forms of discrimination.
As Ontario’s largest public sector union, we have a deep commitment to strengthen and continue to build public services for the citizens of our province, and we see the fight against privatization as integral to all that we do. We work strongly in coalition with community groups and other unions to achieve our goals. As the political wing of Canada’s largest union, political action and equity work are central to all aspects of our action plan which is developed and passed each year directly by the membership of our union.
CUPE Ontario is committed to employment equity, and encourages applications from Aboriginal people, persons with disabilities, people from racialized or racial minority communities, immigrants and refugees, Francophones, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Transsexual people, and women.
