Congratulations to CUPE Manitoba for all the hard work that made this happen! School support staff across Manitoba will now be officially recognized for all their hard work in keeping our schools safe, clean, and the pride of our Province.


Our first School Support Staff Recognition Week was held November 18 to 23, 2013. A cost share campaign between CUPE Manitoba and CUPE National funded the media campaign with radio ad played throughout the province.  CUPE MB held celebration events in Winnipeg, Selkirk, and Dauphin giving our members the opportunity to come together and celebrate. Members reported at our conference on the events held in their Division recognize Support Staff.
