CUPE 387 Logo

What’s behind the CUPE 387 logo?

Designed in 2008 by a long term CUPE 387 member, the logo captures the feeling of team work, working together for a common goal, having a solid background and embracing any new situation. The use of blue and green colours and the use of a solid font for CUPE 387 show strength. You may also see two people reaching out to each other; a show of solidarity.
