CUPE 387 Bargaining Update July 31, 2023

CUPE 387 Bargaining Update – July 31

This has been a challenging round of negotiations and we understand that can be frustrating for members. Unfortunately, the employers have not been willing to engage in meaningful discussions around our key bargaining issues and that has led to little progress being made at the bargaining table.

In the upcoming weeks we will be scheduling two special membership meetings, one in-person and one online over Zoom, to give a detailed update to all members on this round of bargaining and to hear your concerns and answer any questions you have.

We’ll also discuss ways members can support the bargaining committee moving into the fall, and what our negotiating strategy looks like moving forward.

CUPE 387 members deserve a fair collective agreement that recognizes the value of their work. Your bargaining committee is committed to reaching a tentative agreement that addresses your key bargaining priorities and reflects the current economic climate.

We will be sending an email in the coming days with the exact dates of the special meetings so please keep an eye out for that.

The best way to make sure you receive all future bargaining updates is to regularly monitor the CUPE 387 website and also ensure CUPE 387 has your contact information by emailing your personal (non-work) email address to

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us by email at

In solidarity,
Your CUPE 387 Bargaining Committee
