A message from Local 500 President Gord Delbridge:

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Local 500 web site where you’ll find information about our structure and a listing of the Officers and Staff who work on your behalf. Other pages provide you with answers to Frequently Asked Questions and access to various forms that you can complete on-line. I also encourage you to visit the Member Centre where I'm sure you will find valuable information to assist you while on the job.

Our Local continues to face many challenges on a number of fronts. Therefore, it is important that you stay updated on the latest news and activities we have planned. One of the ways you can do that is to visit our site often or sign-up to receive email updates.

You can also request a workplace meeting with the Local 500 President. At these meetings, the union will talk to you about:

- What issues members are facing in the workplace; and

- What the union has been doing in these areas.

The Union will also answer any questions members have about the issues most important to them. Workplace meetings take place before or after work, or at lunch time.. If you would like to arrange this type of meeting, please contact the Local 500 office at 204-942-1001 or email us:

In closing, I would like to thank all our members for your ongoing support to our Local and for all you do to help build a strong and healthy community. 

In solidarity,

Gord Delbridge
President, CUPE Local 500
