I hope you enjoy the photos below of our long-term care members at St. Pat’s Mercy Home and Glenbrook Lodge in St. John’s. It is always so great to get news from members and to hear how you are coping through this very challenging time. My heart goes out to those of you on the frontlines of this pandemic and to those of you working behind the scenes, or in a changed work environment. These are trying times indeed, and seeing your faces is heartwarming and reassuring.
I and other CUPE leaders have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure you have the protective equipment you need to stay safe. It isn’t quite there yet for some of you, and we will keep working on your behalf, as you, in turn, work for all of us. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your courage to keep showing up so the rest of us are safe.
I hope you continue to share your stories and your photos. Send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post them to social media for others to enjoy.
Take heart. We will get through this, and we will be stronger together.
President, CUPE NL
