Go here to find your Local and Chapter and to see when the next meeting is being held.

The best way to learn about meetings is by emails from your AUPE Local and Chapter. Make sure you get these emails by signing up here:

Stand up for Your Rights at Work

Your Membership Services Officer — or MSO — and your worksite AUPE Steward are two of the best resources you can count on. If you don’t know who they are, find out by calling AUPE at 1-800-232-7284.

Chat with them about how you can get involved and make AUPE stronger at your workplace. They can tell you what’s important about your collective agreement, and you can start showing the boss who’s boss.

Take a Course

Learn more about AUPE, your rights, our history, why politics matters, and so much more. AUPE’s courses are great for life-long learners and beginners. The best part? You might be able to get time off work to go.

Check out AUPE’s education courses here. Sign up today!

Attend an Area Council Event

AUPE’s Area Councils are run by members like you. They host fun, family-oriented events all year. These are great opportunities to meet your fellow members and make friendships that help build solidarity.

Don’t know which Area Council you’re part of? Find out here.

Get Political

Let’s face it: for many of us, our jobs are tied to what the government is doing. Even if you work in the private sector, every decision the government makes affects you. So why not have your say? AUPE members have always worked to keep the government accountable, and we’re not shy about telling them what matters to us.

If you feel like you don’t know much about politics, that’s no problem! Click here for a short update on where Alberta’s major political parties stand.
