A big thank you to CUPE K-12 members for supporting children of essential services workers and vulnerable children in B.C. schools during these challenging times. Custodians, clerical, education assistants, bus drivers, IT, and many members who were redeployed provided supports to students and their families. Members collected, sorted, and distributed food to families in their communities. They delivered learning packages to students and helped where they were needed so that voluntary in-class instruction could be offered to families starting in June.
The hard work, attention to detail, and care for students that members bring to their jobs, is appreciated and valued.
On behalf of the K-12 Presidents Council I want to also thank the business agents, CUPE National reps, and specialist reps who support the work of our locals every day.
Don’t forget to check out the K-12 Presidents Council video thanking members for all their work during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Have a safe summer and enjoy your time with family and friends.
In solidarity and safety,
K-12 Presidents Council President
