Thompson Rivers University works because we do.
CUPE 4879 is the union of support staff at Thompson Rivers University. CUPE 4879 represents 600-700 workers at TRU including employees such as utility workers, technicians, admissions officers, electricians, carpenters, administrative assistants, library workers, course editors, production technicians, marketing, orientation leaders, advisors, and many of the student workers on campus.
Many of our jobs directly support students and faculty while others are more administrative or facility related.
The mandate of CUPE 4879 is to improve and maintain the social and economic welfare of our members, to promote efficiency in Public Employment and to give clear evidence of its recognition of the unity of organized labour (solidarity among workers and other labour organizations).
