Welcome to the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 2, a union of approximately 700 workers at the Toronto Transit Commission T.T.C. As part of CUPE, we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with more than half a million public sector workers across the country. We are also affiliated with the Toronto District Council, Toronto Labour Council, and the Ontario Federation of Labour.



Sisters and Brothers of CUPE Local 2,

The employer has released a mandatory vaccination policy.
Here is our response.


In Unity Always,

Dear Sisters and Brothers

On behalf of the CUPE  Local 2 Executive Board,  I wanted to  express our gratitude to the  Entire Membership of CUPE Local 2 for their relentless efforts throughout this very difficult Global Pandemic.

CUPE Local 2 ensures the safety of all our friends and family that ride the TTC.

As everyone is aware, we were unable to host Soccer tournaments, Christmas parties,  Summer BBQ, or any other solidarity building events for a long time. We hope to restart this soon.

In the meantime… we reached out to our Friend Rob, President of ICD Insurance who graciously donated ONE (1) Weber Travel BBQ that one lucky member of CUPE Local 2  can take home or  anywhere to enjoy with their  friends and family.

All CUPE Local 2 members are automatically entered in our Blind Draw BBQ GIVE AWAY which will occur on Aug 13th 2021.

In Unity Always

Gaetano Franco
President Local 2
