The City of North Vancouver raised the Rainbow Flag at City Hall for the duration of Pride Week from July 27th to August 2nd. Mayor Darrell Mussatto has taken this opportunity to “[create] a welcome and supportive community for all citizens that is free from discrimination of any kind.” CUPE Local 389 invites all it’s members to celebrate the start of a great tradition and support the flag raising each year during Pride Week.
June’s Additional Deduction
As a member of CUPE Local 389, you are the controlling force behind our Union. You determine what the Local does, how it operates, what stands to take on issues and what goals the Local has for the future. Your monthly union dues help to:
– Invest in the future
– Create retirement security
– Support fellow Union workers
– Protect health and safety
– Unite people for equality and justice
– Take political action
In accordance with our Collective Agreements and as tradition for the past 50 years, CUPE Local 389 has deducted an additional $5.00 in dues from each member during the month of June. The Local uses these funds to encourage higher learning and support graduates with their post secondary education. For the last half century, we have awarded over ten $1,000 scholarships to applicants seeking further learning opportunities, in order to invest in our future generations. We encourage the recipients to keep the union après with their progress in achieving their goals and certifications and wish them the best of luck in their endeavors. This is an example of your union dues at work. We thank the Union members for their continued support!
