Welcome to CUPE 1858

CUPE Local 1858 supports faculty, staff, and students at Vancouver Island University (VIU).

CUPE 1858 staff support VIU in many ways: we maintain the campus grounds and facilities, process university applications, handle the intake of tuition, connect students and faculty with library resources, provide IT support services and program support, coordinate professional development programs, and so much more. CUPE members can be found in every department at VIU.
