CUPE Nova Scotia represents more than 18,000 working women and men employed throughout the public sector. We are proud to be part of Canada's largest and fastest-growing union.
CUPE represents workers in health care, education, municipalities, libraries, child care, universities, social services, public utilities, transportation, emergency services and airlines.
CUPE members are service-providers, white-collar workers, technicians, labourers, skilled trades people and professionals. More than half of CUPE members are women. About one-third are part-time workers.

Many of you have or will in the future receive a call from CUPE to your home or mobile phone. In an effort to reach out to our members we often, use the services of a Union Calling, to make automated call-outs to members with what we believe important information or by doing a Town Hall meeting through the phone.

Unions fought for many of the benefits workers enjoy today: sick leave, maternity & paternity leave, vacation, minimum wage, paid breaks, over time, workplace safety standards and regulations, collective bargaining rights, and much, much more.
