Statement from Chief Constable Norm Lipinski on SPS Unionization
On behalf of the Surrey Police Service leadership team and the Surrey Police Board, I congratulate the Surrey Police Union (SPU) on its formal certification today to represent sworn members at the Surrey Police Service (SPS). This is a landmark accomplishment for the SPU.
CUPE 402 continues to represent unionized civilian staff at SPS, as was announced in March 2021.
The Surrey Police Union and CUPE 402 are fundamental to the ongoing build of SPS. Both unions have and will support our continued progress toward a local, municipal police service for Surrey.
I look forward to working closely with the leadership of each union to provide the best in public safety for the citizens of Surrey, and a supportive and healthy working environment for our police officers and civilian staff.
