Dear K-12 Members:

Please post and/or distribute the attached bulletin. The bulletin attached provides CUPE’s perspective on the positive news from yesterday; that CUPE school support staff will be one of the priority groups to receive the vaccine. The bulletin also includes some useful information on the updated vaccination plan generally, how and where the vaccine will be made available to K-12 staff, and more. A frequently asked question so far has been “does this apply to my job in the school district?” The government’s announcement states All Staff in Elementary and Secondary Schools, therefore we are taking this to mean it applies to all of CUPE’s members in the K-12 system.

We will be posting this bulletin to @cupek12bc accounts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and on https://bcschools.cupe.ca and www.cupe15.org. We ask you to follow these social media accounts and amplify shared news by liking and/or retweeting our posts, sharing bulletins by email and/or posting to your local website and by sharing and posting the website address.

In solidarity,

Jeanne Marr and Chris Losito
K-12 Coordinators – BC Region
