Bargaining Support Committee (BSC)

The Bargaining Support Committee (BSC) is responsible for organizing among the membership, the University, and the community in support of the Local’s aims in bargaining. Each bargaining unit has a BSC, which works with the unit’s Bargaining Team and the Local to develop and implement a plan for organizing around a round of bargaining. The Bargaining Support Committee has been preparing for potential strike action and has transitioned into the Strike Committee.

Join a Strike Subcommittee: A CUPE Locals Strike Committee has been formed and is coordinating administrative, financial, communications, and picketing subcommittees. You can sign up NOW to join a subcommittee.
