The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) is New Brunswick ’s largest union.

With around 30,000 members across the province, CUPE represents workers in health care, education, municipalities, universities, social services, transportation and nursing homes.

A strong and democratic union, CUPE is committed to improving the quality of life for workers in New Brunswick. Through united action, workers won the right to negotiate their wages and working conditions; to stop arbitrary action by employers; and to speak out without fear of reprisal. Together, we fight social and economic injustices in the workplace and in our communities.

Today, CUPE has 6 regional offices in municipalities across New Brunswick. Nationally, CUPE is Canada’s biggest union, with over 700 000 members.
