CUPE Ontario’s Health & Safety Committee works to promote a healthy and safe work environment for all members in the province. We focus on campaigns for better health and safety legislation, and support locals working to improve health and safety provisions in their collective agreements. We also support education efforts designed to ensure CUPE members are able to defend their rights to healthy and safe workplaces.
The volunteer Health & Safety Committee includes one member from the CUPE Ontario Executive Board, one member elected from each sector, and two members at large from any sector who are elected at the Health & Safety Conference every even-year.
