CUPE Task Force on Governance survey available online now

CUPE members are invited to participate in a new online survey on governance.

At our 2017 National Convention, delegates adopted Resolution 36, which called for the creation of a Task Force on Governance to “conduct a comprehensive review of the governance and structure of our National Union.”

In March 2018, our National Executive Board confirmed the Task Force, which is made up of eight NEBmembers and eight CUPE activists who serve in elected positions at other levels of our union.

As part of our work, we are seeking input from CUPE members, locals and other chartered bodies. Attached you will find a discussion guide and a survey. The survey has been sent in the mail to your local union. That same survey is also available to be completed online.

Make your voice heard and spread the word. Discuss the survey at your local meetings and tell us how CUPE can improve its governance.

Please complete the survey by November 15, 2018.

Precarious Workers Survey

cupe-precarious-workewrs-survey-2016

Hello All,

In the next week or so a steward in your branch will speak with you about the precarious worker survey that CUPE BC has launched.  We were chosen to participate and we are hoping to get as many as possible of our auxiliary, temporary, and part-time workers to fill out the survey.

 

The deadline for completing the survey is December 16th.  The CUPE survey site says to allow 10-15 minutes for completion but if you have comments to make, please allow yourself more time.  This survey is very important and we want the best results possible!

 

From CUPE BC website:

CUPE is concerned about precarious work, but in order to address the problem we need to understand your needs better.  We want to find out the issues you face at work, and in your life as a result of your work.  Once we compile all the information, we can work on some solutions together.

Precarious work is characterized by a lack of job security, unpredictable schedules, low or inferior levels of pay, reduced worker control over workload, limited or no access to health and welfare benefits.  Employer pressure for workplace ‘flexibility’ often leads to more part-time and term work, and less full-time regularized work.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact your executive, or stewards, with any questions.

Many thanks,
CUPE 410 executive
