Happy new year

Dear member,

We hope that everyone has had a safe and relaxing holiday and a great start to 2015.

The Executive Committee of CUPE 4207 would like to remind you that workplace harassment, including that from another member, is unacceptable. According to the CUPE Equality Statement, “union members are equal and deserve mutual respect at all levels.” As well, “we should neither condone nor tolerate behaviour that undermines the dignity or self-esteem of any individual or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment.”

Any behaviour that creates an environment in which a member feels threatened or unsafe is unacceptable. CUPE 4207 will not tolerate harassment of any member in any form.

“Discrimination and harassment focus on characteristics that make us different; and they reduce our capacity to work together on shared concerns such as decent wages, safe working conditions, and justice in the workplace, society and in our union.”

If you have a matter of concern, please contact the Executive so that any issues that arrive may be dealt with in a respectful and safe manner.

Sincerely,
CUPE 4207 Executive
