Attention CUPE Members

What is “Duty to Accommodate”?

The duty to accommodate is an obligation upon employers and unions, to adapt work and workplaces to allow persons with disabilities the right to work without discrimination. This obligation comes from two sources: the applicable human rights legislation (in our case the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code) and rulings from the Supreme Court of Canada.

What is an Accommodation?

In circumstances where an employee is unable to perform the regular duties of their position due to a mental or physical disability, an accommodation can be required. An accommodation can mean anything from modification of duties, shifts, and equipment, up to and including, retraining if necessary.

Who plays a part in duty to accommodate?

The primary responsibility rests with the employer, because it has the ultimate control over the workplace. Once it receives a request, the employer must initiate the accommodation search.

The union must co-operate with the accommodation process, and not unreasonably block a viable accommodation option. The union is there to protect your interests and the interests of the other bargaining unit members.

The employee is expected to participate in the accommodation process, and cannot refuse a reasonable accommodation offer. The employee must provide sufficient information to the employer concerning restrictions or limitations including necessary information from health professionals. The employee doesn’t have to reveal the actual diagnosis so long as sufficient information about restrictions and accommodation needs is provided.

What does this mean for me as a union member?

You should inform your principal of your need for accommodation and cooperate in providing the necessary information. When you inform your principal of your request you should also tell them that you want your union involved in any discussions or meetings about your accommodation. You should contact the local and advise them of your request – you can count on them to advocate on your behalf and follow-up to make sure the solution is really working.

CUPE 3766 Members

We are starting new with the personal email loop again. There are several new members in our local and several members who have resigned and/or retired. It is very difficult keeping up to date with these changes without your help!

Could one person in each school, please check with our CUPE 3766 members in their school and ask if I have their email address? If our members do not wish to give out their personal email address, please make a list of their names and the email addresses that you were able to get from our members and forward this information on to me at jackiechristianson@myaccess.ca

This seems to be the most effective way to communicate, along with our web-site, and then everyone should be informed of important information. Hope everyone is having a "smooth transition" into the new school year. Please let your shop stewards know if there are any concerns you have.They are willing to help.

I really appreciate your help in this matter!

 NEW EFAP SERVICESGood afternoon, after many months of meetings, your local is proud to announce, effective March 1, 2020 Family Services will be our locals new Employee Family Assistance Program (EFAP) provider. I've attached their brochure that gives a summary of the services they provide. It is our belief that Family Services will provide improvements to our EFAP services. They will give immediate and confidential assistance (counselling) in person, phone, video conference, online chat, or on line.

A few other services they offer include: manage well-being for yourself/family members, relationships, work; and work-life solutions such as child/elder care, legal consultation, financial advice, improved physical well-being.

As with all services, at the end of the day you get what you pay for. Our new service provider will cost more money as we wanted improved services for all our members, and wanted our members to have access to these services in Regina. That being said, the bonus to our CUPE 3766 members is that we don't ask you to pay for the EFAP services. Your union dues are used to cost share this benefit with our employer.

Please contact Family Services 24/7 at 1-866-757-6620 starting Sunday March 1, 2020!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Cupe Sask Media Advisory

September 24, 2019FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Media Advisory:

CUPE’s request to present at Regina Public School Board meeting ignored; workers to protest outside(Regina)CUPE education workers will be picketing the Regina Public School Board meeting instead of presenting workers’ bargaining concerns inside.On September 9, CUPE locals 650 and 3766 submitted a written request to present their bargaining concerns at the September 24 board meeting in closed session. To date, the locals have received no acknowledgement from the board.“Our members work hard for the school division, and it is shameful that we are being ignored,” said Jackie Christianson, president of CUPE Local 3766. “If the school board won’t let us have a seat at their table to hear our concerns, then we’ll be on the streets demanding a fair deal.” Bargaining continues to be strained between the board and CUPE locals 650 and 3766. Both locals have a strike mandate from their membership, and recent bargaining dates have been less than fruitful.The lack of response from the school board echoes one of the issues at the bargaining table.“The employer is proposing removing Step 3 from the grievance process, which would remove our ability to present our members’ grievances to them,” added Christianson. “It is concerning that they are pushing this particular concession, while also ignoring our request for a bargaining presentation to hear our concerns. Why would they not want to hear from their employees?” WHERE:Regina Public School Board Office1600 4th Avenue WHEN:4:45 p.m. (The board meeting starts at 5:30 p.m.)CUPE represents close to 7,000 education support workers across the province, including support staff at the Regina Public School Board

Continuation of Benefits Request Form - Important Information to Remember

If your doctor has requested for you not to return to work and you've run out of banked sick days you may be considered on a leave of absence. You will receive a Continuation of Benefits Request Form. It must be filled out within 14 days.

Several members are placed in this situation every year. It is important for you to consider the form carefully, even if you're not currently in this situation. The form gives you options into paying or not paying for the following benefits: Pension, LTD, Extended Health & Dental and Life Insurance.

It's important to factor in that some of these benefits are very expensive, in particular on a reduced income. However, a few of the benefits are relatively in-expensive, for example the LTD and life Insurance Benefits.

You may choose not pay into these benefits due to your current situation, but if your situation changes; you may require one of these benefits and will no longer have an option of accessing the benefits. Once you choose to not pay into your benefits, your decision is final.

Please contact your Shop Steward, Jackie Christianson or Jo-ann Hincks (306-523-3034) if you require assistance in making decisions on your benefits.
