CUPE 1091 Budget Presentation 2018

February 27, 2018
To Chairperson Dixon, Superintendent Sheppard, Trustees and Staff,
Thank you for the opportunity to send in the concerns of CUPE Local 1091, your Delta School District Support Staff union, with regards to the upcoming budget process.
Every year at this time your Education Partners, including CUPE, come to you “hat in hand” asking that you stop making cuts to the lower end of the budget scale. And every year, with one or two minor exceptions, these requests go mostly ignored.

EXTENDED HEALTH BENEFITS

CUPE 1091 members opted to participate in the Provincial Standardized Extended Health Care Plan, and there will be an opportunity for those individuals who have previously waived their extended health care plan to enroll in this plan. Please note that this only applies to extended health care and does not apply to dental coverage. For details, please download the attachments below.
