We are the Custodial/Maintenance; Office, Clerical Technical Staff and
Educational Assistants of Trillium Lakelands District School Board

Our CUPE Local is a chartered member of the Canadian Union of Public Employees – a national, all-Canadian Union. We are over 600,000 members strong across Canada – we’re the workers who deliver important public services. Our work makes our communities work …. CUPE – on the front line in your community ….. www.cupe.ca

A CUPE National Representative is assigned to each Local. Our CUPE Representative assists our Executive and Committees regarding all labour relations issues such as

  • Ongoing administration of our collective agreements
  • Grievances, mediation/arbitrations
  • Bargaining
  • Federal and Provincial legislation affecting education and school board workers
  • Health and Safety issues
  • and much more!

CUPE Ontario is our Provincial “watchdog” www.cupe.on.ca – many laws affecting CUPE Members are decided by Provincial Governments. In Ontario, school board funding is determined by the Ministry of Education. Provincial Divisions do not “service” CUPE Locals – the Divisions’ role is to lobby, in co-operation with CUPE Locals and “watchdog” legislation and practices of the Provincial Government.

CUPE Ontario is set up in “sectoral groups”. We are part of the CUPE Ontario School Board Co-ordinating Committee (OSBCC). Our Area 7 of the OSBCC also includes Durham (both Public and Catholic School Boards), Kawartha-Pine Ridge School Board and Peterborough, Northumberland, Clarington and Victoria Catholic School Board.

YOU ARE INVITED …. There are three CUPE Local 997 Regular General Meetings per year. The meetings are on Saturdays commencing at 10:30 a.m. Check out the Calendar for the specific dates and meeting locations.

For more information about CUPE 997 please download our Flyer provided to new CUPE hires.
