VSB COVID-19 Update, June 18

Friday, June 19, 2020

We wish to bring to everyone`s attention a survey that will be arriving in your in boxes early next week regarding your work experiences during COVID-19.


The survey is being conducted by CUPE BC, and is for all K-12 members throughout the Province.


We encourage everyone to participate in this survey to have your voices heard as to what you encountered regarding workload, safety and communications.


The survey will be available for 2 to 3 weeks for members to participate.


If you know of someone who we don`t have their ``personal`` email address, encourage them to contact the union office to have the survey sent to them.


On a local level we are looking toward September and what that could look like.


No formal discussions have taken place with the employer, but we will be reaching out over the next few weeks to get an update as we understand they are currently in the planning stages.


Please feel free to contact the union office should you have any questions or concerns.


Thank you again to everyone for all your efforts during these very stressful and challenging times, we hope as Dr. Bonnie says, everyone will “Be Safe”…. and try and have a well-deserved summer break!


In solidarity,
Warren Williams - President, CUPE Local 15
