Your CUPE Local 15 Executive Board is distressed and horrified by the recent violence against the people in Israel and Palestine. We are also aware that some of our membership have been deeply troubled/polarized by recent online statements. These statements do not ease the pain and suffering in either of these communities. We deplore the violence unleashed on people in the region in this ongoing conflict. Our hearts go out to those who have lost friends, family, and community members. If any CUPE Local 15 members are in need of support, please contact your Employee Assistance Program where you work.
