Welcome to CUPE 474



January 2021

Happy New Year to all the members and their families in CUPE 474.

While we welcome the kids back into our schools, you Executive are advocating for more supports from our Government to do this work as safely as possible.   We are not alone in this work, we are in this struggle together with CUPE AB Division, CUPE National, as well as the Alberta Federation of Labour.

The Union is you, and all your brothers sisters and friends working together in solidarity to face our challenges.  If you need support, we will provide it.

We ask our members to keep their guard up against this virus and to continue to provide the great public services that we provide.

Please be advised that there will be a special meeting for Edmonton Public School members on January 23 at 9 AM for the purpose of reviewing the bargaining proposals to take to the bargaining table.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact your office.

John Vradenburgh
