Mask and Sanitizer Distribution

Local 002 Executive is pleased to let you know we have now received the masks as mentioned in the newsletter.

We are in the process of building 500 "Care kits". These kits include one face mask, one bottle of hand sanitizer and a couple of wristbands.  We have 500 face masks in addition to the "care kits" that we need to distribute just as face masks.  Please keep in mind this care package is in no way a replacement of PPE the employer is obligated to provide, but a way to reach out to our members.  

Local Executive is working on getting these distributed to our members

Volunteer Opportunity

Looking to volunteer with AUPE this summmer?

AUPE is looking for members from Local 002 who would be interested in taking union leave to participate in a phonebank calling Local 002 members. You will receive your regular pay for the time spent.

The goal of the phonebank is to talk to fellow members about what is going on in bargaining and the potential need to take legal job action down the line to prevent Local 002 members from being laid off. 

If you are interested in taking paid time off work to participate any time in August (or early September if necessary), please contact Madelaine Sommers at for more information.
