CUPE BC has endorsed CKNW’s campaign to stop bullying in our schools, workplaces and in society. CUPE does not often team with media in campaigns but this issue is of common concern for those who care about fairness for all and healthy communities. Wear Pink on Wednesday, Feburary 27th and send a message: Bullying Stops Here.
CUPE offers several workshops on the subjects of bullying and harassment:
- Worksite Harassment
- Respect in the Workplace and Saying No to Harassment
- Respect in the Workplace
- Saying No to Harassment
- Bullying and Harassment
CUPE 391 has sent union contacts, grievance committee representatives and members to these courses. If you feel that you would benefit from such training please call 604-322-4879. Inder Pannu, Member-at-Large, is our Education chair.
From Barry O’Neil’s letter:
At work, personal harassment and bullying undermine the self-esteem and dignity of individuals and creates a hostile or offensive work environment.
Besides being destructive to worker health, it also has a negative impact on our ability to provide quality public services.”
Please bring your cameras to work on Wednesday February 27th and film your friends and colleagues looking smashing in pink. CUPE BC wants your pictures and videos.
