It is the largest union on campus, with nearly 3000 members. If you are a CUPE 4600 member and are looking for assistance, please contact us at info@cupe4600.ca. CUPE 4600 members are organized into two distinct units. Unit 1 includes Teaching Assistants and Internally-Funded Research Assistants, while Unit 2 includes all Contract Instructors. Both units have distinct Collective Agreements, which are bargained at the same time, by two separate bargaining teams.
