Are you a new CUPE Local 5523 member or want to learn or stay informed on CUPE issues, meetings and events.  

Why do I need to use a personal email address to get union updates ?

So there are a couple of reasons

  • If we ever need to go on strike we need to have a way to communicate with each other that we have control over, if rely on the email service the employer provides that could take it away making it harder for us to organize.
  • It’s more confidential, the employer has access to all the emails you send with their email service, it’s very unlikely they are spying on you but this is just a way to keep it confidential.
  • Simply, SD22 emails should be used for union business.
