Welcome to the website of the Comox Valley Municipal Workers Union – CUPE Local 556

People depend on public services; services depend on people to deliver them.

Municipal workers touch every part of life: they fix roads, provide emergency care, connect us with library resources, run ice rinks, work at daycares, lead community workshops, and are responsible for maintaining safe, clean, drinking water systems and wastewater treatment systems. We’re facing tough economic times, and that’s when we need affordable, reliable public services most.

CUPE 556 represents the municipal workers of the Comox Valley, specifically, the City of Courtenay, Town of Comox, Village of Cumberland and the Comox Valley Regional District.
