Member to Member Political Action Training Available through CUPE BC and the BC Federation of Labou

CUPE BC is excited to be partnering with the BC Federation of Labour in the delivery of several sessions of Electing a Future Worth Fighting For. This one-day course will focus on building our members’ capacity to talk about politics with other members, and will help get us ready for the upcoming provincial election on October 19, 2024.

CUPE BC and CUPE have developed a budget that will allow for them to pay for dozens of members to attend training in their region, or virtually.

If you would like to send members to this training but would like to have CUPE BC pay for it, please complete this form. This will allow us to go through the necessary approvals processes for the Division. Available seats for these sessions are limited by budget and space constraints. Participants will be brought into our rapidly growing Political Action Network.

If your local would like to send members directly, registration for sessions are open through the BC Fed.

The following training is available in your region:

City Date Location
Richmond May 9 Richmond Teachers’ Association Office
Virtual June 5 Zoom
Surrey June 6 Surrey Central Public Library
Langley June 10 USW 2009 Hall
Burnaby June 11 IUOE 115 Hall
Chilliwack June 17 Coast Hotel Chilliwack


If you have members who are looking for more advanced forms of training, or who are keen to become involved in CUPE BC’s member-focused political action plans for this fall, please connect directly with Neal Adolph, Political Action Coordinator, at

Additional virtual training is planned to provide local presidents with an outline of activities that are permitted during an election. This training will take place in the evenings. The dates are being finalized, but you can anticipate an update soon.

If you have any questions or concerns, please connect directly with me.

Note: This message was BCC’ed to all presidents and national reps in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley Regions.

Since time immemorial the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nations have stewarded and cared for the unceded territory where I live and work. They continue to offer us leadership on how to live on this land that they know best.
