The history of HEU

A powerful and respected advocate to have on your side

As a member of HEU, you will belong to the largest health union in B.C. – a union with a proven record of standing up for the issues you face on the job and in your community.

Our 60,000 members work in every area of health care, including community health and community social services. We work for public, non-profit, and private employers.

And as the B.C. health care services division of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), HEU is part of the biggest union in Canada..

Since 1944, we have achieved tremendous gains for health care workers.

Our record has equipped HEU to fight and win some of the toughest battles facing health care workers today.
