About us

Executive and stewards


CUPE Local 1936 is located in unceded Central Coast Salish territory.  We wish to express our gratitude for the use of this unceded territory to all Central Coast Salish Peoples and to Qay’gayt and Musqueam First Nations who have ties to this territory.

CUPE Local 1936 believes that acknowledging Traditional Indigenous Territory is a way to honour and show respect to the original inhabitants of this land, on which we learn, work and play.



The Office is located upstairs inside Royal Square Mall at #208 – 800 McBride Blvd., New Westminster BC V3L 2B8.  Our phone number is 604-522-8445, and our fax number is 604-777-0297.

E-mail contact is best or voice mail if we are not in. Be sure to include: your name, where you work, phone number or e-mail and the best time to reach you.  You can also try some Executive Members on their cell phones.
