NOVEMBER NEWS

ContentGood afternoon, I'd like to take this opportunity to update CUPE 3766 members on Important Events Happening:



Tuesday November 5



INFORMATION PICKET BEFORE THE PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD MEETING!

Starts at 5:00 p.m.
Regina Public School Board Office
1600 4th Avenue (beside the Wholesale Club)

Join us and let the Board know: Education Workers Are Not Worth Less!

Why should trustees give themselves huge raises while telling school workers to take concessions?



Following our quick information picket, please join us for the Public Session of the RPSD Board meeting at 5:30 (Tuesday November 5)





The parents, children, staff and community members that support RPS Pride Celebrations also support the important work we do! This work includes rights to a fair deal without any zeros! Please help show your support that all of our students deserve access to our shared values of I belong, I respect, I want to know and I am Responsible and join us at this important board meeting.

Thursday November 14: New Bargaining Meeting Date

To provide a bit of a bargaining update, as indicated in my last email to the members, I did have a video made regarding our bargaining facts and fiction. To date, I have not been given a copy of the video to share with the members. The holdup is with CUPE National, and until they give me a copy of the video, there is nothing I can share. In addition I’ve worked on a two page Bargaining facts and fiction document to supplement the video. I am still in the process of working on getting our message on electronic bill boards; I hope to have the contract signed this week. Our message is NO worker is worth zero! We are not worth less than other CUPE Education Support workers in Saskatchewan! We are not worth less than our employers! Our schools work because we do!



Other news with bargaining is that many of you are probably not aware of this but I’ve been the Chairperson of the Education Workers Steering Committee who represents over 7000 CUPE Education Support Workers across the province for the past 10 years. As one of my advocacy duties, I was able to meet with Minister of Education Gord Wyant on October 16th. I spent one hour talking with him about not only our locals bargaining difficulties, but 650’s and 5512’s (Prairie South School Division) as well. When I disclosed exactly the gross income of many of our members, the Minister was shocked, and agreed, that we currently don’t make a “living wage”. I talked about the facts of what we are offered and the facts of what our concession are, it was during this discussion Gord me why anyone would sign a collective agreement when the concessions are worth more in cost savings to our employer than the meager monetary offerings they’d like for us to accept. We discussed our September bargaining meeting in which our employer’s representatives said our years of zeros are government mandated….I asked Minister why he would do this to us, as he had previously agreed that we didn’t currently earn a “living wage”. The Minister adamantly denied mandating zeros to any education support worker, and I do believe the minister contacted our school board to reiterate this message. I was not surprised to be contacted for another bargaining meeting date. 650 is scheduled to bargain in the morning of November 14th and we will be bargaining in the afternoon. I have a follow up meeting scheduled with Minister’s Wyant and Morgan for Tuesday November 19th to discuss the details of the violence survey that we participated in this past spring. The survey results will be an eye opener for the government on the violence, and health and safety issues we support workers face on a daily basis, in particular, the support workers at Regina Public School Board and as sad as the reality of our increased worker safety hazards in our schools, the irony is that we are the same workers that are not being offered a fair deal in bargaining.



Friday November 15 Deadline to sign up for Christmas Social please review the attached posters that should be posted in your schools now! Reserve your spot now at by going on line to: https:signup.com/go/AKVfGSa



That’s it for now; I will keep you updated on bargaining as things progress.



I hope to see you on Tuesday and/or Wednesday and/or Thursday!

President CUPE 3766

Our schools work because we do

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.

Personal E-mail Loop and Shop Stewards: A Message from President Jackie Christianson

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

Could one person in each school please check with our 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 you 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 very willing to help!

For a new list of shop stewards and their schools/email addresses, please check your school bulletin board for the list and/ or our web-site at www.cupe3766.com. Click on the "shop stewards" box. I really appreciate your help in this matter!
