People depend on public services; services depend on people to deliver them.
City workers touch every part of life: they fix roads, provide emergency care, test drinking water, connect us with library resources, run ice rinks, work at daycares, lead community workshops, and much more. We’re facing tough economic times, and that’s when we need affordable, reliable public services most. CUPE Local 389 members are responsible for providing these excellent services and can be seen all around the community in the North Vancouver region.
