This committee works to raise awareness with CUPE members of international issues and the common interests and struggles of workers around the world. The committee supports and reports to the membership on CUPE BC’s worker-to-worker projects, which are aimed at building links between the labour movement in Canada and the developing world.

Through our partnerships with progressive organizations such as CoDevelopment Canada and the Stephen Lewis Foundation, as well as our work with the CUPE National Global Justice Committee, the International Solidarity Committee works to build membership capacity and participation in support of workers’ rights in Canada and internationally.
