Welcome to CUPE 87

cupe-4People depend on public services; services depend on people to deliver them.

CUPE 87 – We make Thunder Bay & District Work

Our 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.

The District of Thunder Bay Social Services Administration Board (TBDSSAB) delivers vital social services to individuals and families living in the District of Thunder Bay.

TBDSSAB supports people to improve their lives and become self-sufficient. We do this through the delivery of quality social services including: Child Care, Housing and Ontario Works.
