People depend on public services; services depend on people to deliver them.

Cupe 374 represents over 1000 municipal workers in 7 different municipalities and 2 community services throughout the Victoria region. Our members work for Abilities Community Services, Municipalities of Colwood, Esquimalt, Metchosin, North Saanich, Oak Bay, Sidney & Sooke, and Together Against Poverty Society.

 

City workers touch every part of life: they fix roads, provide emergency care, test drinking water, connect us with library resources, run ice rinks, work at daycares, lead community workshops, and much more. We’re facing tough economic times, and that’s when we need affordable, reliable public services most.
