COVID-19 Update for March 26, 2020

Good Evening Members,

Well instead of following in the steps of private industry, that are doing the right thing and shutting down their operations, those in charge of public education in this province have decided that the K-12 support staff here in B.C. are expendable.  We are deeply disappointed with today’s decision, but we will continue to advocate on behalf of members and their safety as we know that this is weighing heavy on your minds given all the communications we have received as of late.

As healthcare workers here in B.C. continue to plea with the public to stay home, this has clearly fallen on deaf ears with many of the decision makers in our K-12 system.  However, if for any reason members have concerns regarding their own health or the health of their loved ones then staying home is an absolute must!

There is a new COVID-19 app that can be downloaded free of charge to your mobile devices that may be of assistance in answering questions or addressing concerns regarding this pandemic.

We would ask all members to please check their personal emails for further correspondence from the Union and if we do not have your personal email please contact the Union office either via phone 604-392-1411 or at so that we can add you to our email group.

In Solidarity,

CUPE 411 Executive
