100 years of standing together

100 years of standing together

Alberta’s largest union with more than 95,000 members, is celebrating 100 years of standing together in solidarity for workers’ rights. In 1919, the Civil Service Association of Alberta, AUPE’s predecessor, was founded, representing provincial government workers. The union we know as as AUPE was born in 1976, and since then the union has grown to become the province’s largest and most diverse, with members working in government, health care, education, boards and agencies, municipalities and private companies.
