CUPE Local 1267 represents approximately 220 municipal workers serving the needs of 37,500 residents in Mission, British Columbia, Canada.
The Union and its elected officials provide representation for each of its members. Key responsibilities include:
Negotiating the Collective Agreement (CA) with our Employer (the District of Mission) for fair and respectful wages, benefits and working conditions;
Ensuring that all members work in a safe and healthy workplace;
Supporting members against unfair treatment and harassment;

Local 1267 also provides additional services to its members. These services include:
Education bursaries to members and their dependents;
Comprehensive training programs for shop stewards and activists;
Financial assistance if on strike or locked out;
Access to specialized staff to fully represent members including Job Evaluation and Legal Representatives.

CUPE Local 1267 members consider themselves partners with both our Employer and Mission residents in assisting to build and maintain a beautiful, vibrant and sustainble community.
Our members’ dedication ensures that Mission residents receive the best possible public services. Many of our members choose to live, work and play in Mission. We believe it is vital for our members to help contribute in making Mission a wonderful community. Numerous members give back to the community serving as coaches, leaders and volunteers in a variety of community groups and organizations.
