Many of our members have reached out regarding some statements put out by CUPE Local 3906 and the CUPE Ontario President. Considering these statements, we want to be very clear that they do not reflect the views of the Air Canada Component of CUPE or any of its locals. The Component has shared the concerns brought forward with CUPE National, and will continue to do so as they come in. We understand that the situation is complex. The loss of human life and the conflict is undeniably a humanitarian crisis. Our hearts go out to those who are facing the realities of this, and we mourn for every life lost.
We believe in promoting understanding, compassion, and respect for diverse perspectives. Now more than ever, it is crucial for us to come together as a union and support one another. Let us focus on fostering understanding, empathy, and unity among our members. We remain committed to serving the best interests of our members.
In these difficult times, we encourage our members to reach out for support to the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provided by CUPE and Air Canada. EAP is a valuable resource that offers confidential counseling services, support, and resources to help navigate through challenging times.
Please reach out to your Union at anytime for support, we are here for each of you, and will continue represent all members.
