Response Letter from the President

This letter is in response to a letter posted on the NBNU website which was very upsetting to our LPN’s, PCA’s and Paramedics in Healthcare.

After reading the letter I reached out to the President of NBNU, Paula Doucette to question her on the intent of this letter; where was this coming from and why. I want to convey her exact words to you, “this letter was in no way meant to be a divide and concur letter, they respect all healthcare classifications, it takes everyone to make the system function.”

Message from the President

Now that I be had a minute to sit down and think about the day and this announcement, there is a few things I would like to say and a number of people I would like to thank.

Since 2012, NBCHU CUPE Local 1252 has been fighting against this file on several fronts.

I have been reading posts and comments thanking me for this outcome, however as President of CUPE 1252 I am not the sole reason this outcome has happened.   Am I part of it, absolutley, but without the membership having faith, trust, patience and being part of the campaign against Sodexo, the outcome may have been different.

Donation for May 2018 flood

A resolution was presented to the NEB today and was passed unanimously.

CUPE National are going to donate $20,000 to be split among six food banks in the regions most impacted by the devastating May 2018 flood.

BECAUSE:

  • Communities in New Brunswick are still recovering after being hit by the devastating flood. Thousands of citizens have seen their houses destroyed or partly destroyed by the water.
  • This money will go directly to food banks that have seen their stock depleted and who are struggling to restock their shelves.
  • CUPE believes it is its role to support the communities affected by such tragedies.

aed sponsorshipCardiac arrest can happen without warning, to anyone. Performing CPR and using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) until emergency medical services arrive can double the chance of surviving a cardiac arrest.

We would like to recognize the wonderful generosity of CUPE 1252, New Brunswick Council of Hospital Unions. With their donation of $30,000, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of New Brunswick is able to place 8 AEDs in elementary and middle schools throughout the province where this lifesaving device was previously absent.
