Cumberland Miners' Strike

We won the United Way Community Spirit Award for Engagement!

CUPE 23 was awarded the United Way Community Spirit Award for Engagement because we did everything in our power to show people that every donation does make a difference. Presentations, videos, agency tours, special thank you’s – we did it all. We used successful strategies to engage our members through all levels of our organization in order to maintain or increase dollars given directly to United Way of the Lower Mainland, and the Engage Award recognizes this achievement. Through United Way, we help create possibility for over 400,000 people in our local community!
