Along with the rest of CUPE NL’s division executive, I share your concern and anxiety for your well-being, and your family, co-workers and community, in light of the COVID cases announced this week.
We are vigilantly watching the situation around the clock. Meetings have been taking place almost non-stop and your CUPE servicing reps are busy communicating with government, employers and locals to make sure you all remain safe at work.
Your health and safety are our main concern during this difficult time. It’s crucial that your employer takes the new restrictions announced by Dr. Fitzgerald seriously and makes certain that the workplace health and safety precautions needed to limit exposure are in place.
For information about staying safe at work, please visit our website at nl.cupe.ca/covid-19.
Many of you are essential frontline workers. We recognize that you have already been stressed to the maximum and I want to express my gratitude and respect for everything that you do. There are no adequate words to say how valuable you are.
Please contact your local’s servicing rep or local executive to address concerns related to your work or workplace.
Stay safe and stay strong my friends.
Weekly sector meetings will resume this week. These meetings are intended for CUPE local leadership only.
