CUPE HCPC is represented by the presidents and delegates of THE CUPE 15, 1004, 1978, 3403-01 and 4816 locals. Each of these Aboriginal people represents members in the two municipal health collective agreements in B.C.: the Community Health Bargaining Association (CBA) and the Health Science Professionals Bargaining Association (HSPBA). Together, these local CUPEs represent just over 1,200 CBA members and about 1,000 HSPBA members. The HCPC meets quarterly and is tasked with supporting cupE HSPBA and CBA collective bargaining, promoting treaty implementation, promoting common goals faced by CUPE members in these bargaining associations, and promoting and defending our publicly funded health care system. Full report for HSA members on preliminary agreement 2019 – 2022 CBA workers include home assistance, clinical, administrative assistance and mental health, which ensure that our clients have basic life needs such as adequate housing, food, social recreation, employment and the link to services that support their mental and physical health. The CBA is run by the BC Government and Service Employees Union (BCGEU), which has the majority of the association`s membership. The other constituent unions are CUPE, HEU, UFCW, HSA, ETC, BCNU and CLAC. CUPE has just over 1,200 members among the CBA`s 17,000 members, or about 7 per cent of the CBA`s total membership.

CUPE has about 1,000 members among the 19,500 members of the HSPBA, or about 4.32 percent of HSPBA`s total membership.
