The Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union — “COPE” — is the newest Canadian union.
Our national union was formed in a matter of weeks in a most democratic demonstration of union member participation with over 74% of our entire Canadian membership making their individual and collective wishes known to form and become part of a Canadian national union.
With such a dynamic and impressive display of democracy as our foundation, our national union continues to build on that exciting democratic start.
While respecting the autonomy of our 47 Locals and recognizing our 2 councils COPE values the collective strength nationally of our 34,000 members.
Our Vision is to make COPE a household name to both existing and new union members, to continue to proudly display our COPE SEPB logo as we bring unionization to unorganized workplaces and to the public as we better educate society on the value and important role of Unions today.
Every person has a right to be treated with dignity and respect. We believe that by working together, through our union, we can improve working conditions, strengthen our communities and make society a better place to live.
Join us — Together we can make a difference!
