Welcome to CUPE 748

CUPE Local 748 is comprised of the support staff of The Kootenay Lake School District #8 as well as the employees of Creston and District Community Complex and Creston Public Library.

Our School district runs from Meadow Creek which is North of Kaslo, to Slocan, then South to Nelson and Salmo over the Kootenay Pass, or over the ferry through Crawford Bay and Creston all the way to Yahk.

We are the people who greet children first thing in the morning as they board the bus. We welcome them and make sure that they have arrived safely at school. We make sure they get the help they need during their school day. We make sure that the schools are clean and shiny. We are the ones who fix everything and make sure the buildings are healthy for all!

We are the members of CUPE Local 748!
