We also want to make sure that our members are aware that CUPE Metro established a hardship fund a few months ago with 60 000 budget. Currently, members can contact the CUPE 728 office for more information.

There was discussion on vaccinations being provided to CUPE members who are aged 60 or older, and a motion was put to the floor The motion is: To ask Cupe BC to write the Minister of Health to give COVID 19 vaccination priorities to school support workers starting from workers 60 years and older. Cupe BC will structure the letter.
