CUPE 3550 Communicators 2020 – 2021

Each site will be sent a Communicator Package in the next couple of weeks that will include a letter to update Communicator and staffing information for the new school year.  We know that there have been many staff changes for the 2020 – 2021 school year.  The information included in the letter is what we have on record from 2019 – 2020.  Please review and update as needed.  Much appreciated!

Based on Alberta Health and the Chief Medical Officer’s recommendations, CUPE Local 3550 will hold an in-person membership meeting following all protocols for such a gathering.  The physical space booked will allow for physical distancing of at least 6 feet, masks will be required and hand sanitizer will be provided.  Please be respectful of members with scent-sensitivities.

Also, we have reusable masks provided by CUPE Alberta.  There will be a form included in the first Communicator package to assist us in distribution of these masks.  Please complete and return the form to the office so we can send each support staff member a reusable mask.

Check out CUPE Local 3550 website and Facebook!

CUPE Local 3550 has a new website!  The public can access the main page.

The new site has a ‘members only’ portal that contains confidential information to card-carrying members of CUPE Local 3550 only.  You will need your 7-digit Union number from your Union card and a personal email address (NOT your *.epsb.ca) to register for access to member portal.

Stay safe and healthy!!

Carol Thompson
