About CUPE204

Made up of over 14,000 health care workers from more than 50 care facilities across Winnipeg and Manitoba, CUPE 204 stands for quality care — and a strong public health care system. We are united against government cuts and privatization.


Together, we protect the workers who care for Winnipeg and Manitoba.
