Dear Members of CUPE Local 932:
Thank you all so much for your patience and support as your Union Executive is working through this difficult time.
We are continuously working with Management to keep lines of communication open and to be able to update our members with any new information. If you have any questions about the Work From Home arrangement, please direct these questions to your Manager. And, if you haven’t already, take the Introduction to Teams software course on Lynda.com. This will be the main channel for communicating with your co-workers and your Manager.
These are unprecedented times for us. Please allow yourself the space to reflect on your feelings. It is natural to be scared and anxious. Remember to practice self care. We have all been vigilant in practising safe hygiene and social and physical distancing but be mindful of your mental health as well. Take micro breaks from the learning process. Check in with friends, family and co-workers. Try, if possible, to create a separate zone for working to allow you to leave the workplace after your shift.
Your Union Executive is still working for you.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Solidarity and with Care,
