There is a fundraiser for Sister Sandra Caulderwood.
Chicken & Rib Night Fundraiser (BBQ 1/4 Chicken w/ Caesar Salad, Rice & Garlic Toast)
Tickets are $25.00 and can be purchased from Ally Allary @306-551-8638
Location: 4 Seasons 909E Arcola Avenue 306-525-8338
Date Friday May 12, 2017 between 6:00-9:00 p.m.

May 1 Public/Parent Forum.

The event will start at 6:30 at the Cathedral Neighbourhood Centre 2900 13th Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan S4T 1N7. Please make this meeting a priority!

I have shared this event on facebook, if you have a facebook account, please friend request me, my name is Jacqueline Christianson on facebook. This has proven to be a very effect tool to communicate with members, at this point I have 230 members as friends, they have been able to keep up on all the changes our government has made in the Education sector.

As of April 28, 2017 you will hear two different types of radio ads from me (Z99, C95, CKOM, CJME), the first one is about the governments introduction and pending approval of Bill 63 which will allow our to government to make drastic changes to our education system, such as changing our school board boundaries and impeding the voices of parents, communities and elected school board trustees. Yes, I know all of us tried to stop the school board amalgamations, and keep elected school board trustees. The government said they listened, but in reality they didn't as all the changes can be done once Bill 63 is approved.

Thank you to our CUPE National Communications Representative, Tria Donaldson as she was able to update our "where’s the funding" website , the update now includes an additional new letter writing tool about our cuts and Bill 63. We can now use this tool to email Premier Brad Wall, Minister of Education, Don Morgan, and your own MLA. Please click on the following link, and please, please, please share widely with your friends, family, coworkers, etc... and ask them to send letters....

click here: http://wheresthefunding.ca

Time is of the essence here, and we need to send as many letters as possible as next week Bill 63 will be voted on....you can share your letter more than once, for example, write one to Brad Wall, Don Morgan and your personal MLA!
The second radio ad, is discussing an additional action from our government, they underfunded school divisions province wide by $54 million while increasing our education taxes by $67 million. The governments introduction and pending approval of Bill 48 will allow our government to divert our education taxes including the $67 million increase into their General Revenue Fund (GFR).
We know both these Bills are wrong as they negatively affect our children, workers and all taxpayers in the province!

The day following our special membership meeting on impending cuts, Regina Public Schools announced cuts to three pre-school programs (CPS, DPS and SCEP), changes to kindergarten and cuts to 1100 student's transportation.

This is just the beginning as those cuts only resulted in $3.1 million savings and an additional $6.4 million still needs to be found. In addition we are expecting an additional 575 new students to our schools and reduced government funding! This government has left school divisions no choice but to cut our children's programs and our services!

One additional note on the public/parent forum, the intent of the forum is to address the needs of all our children attending both Regina Public schools and Regina Catholic schools, we will not debate either school divisions constitutional rights. In other words, I will not allow our government distract us with a "holy" debate, when the real issues at hand are Bills 63 and 48.


General Membership Meeting Date Changed

Another update is that our next membership meeting will be held on May 9th at 7:00 p.m. in the Multicultural room at the board office....normally our meeting would have been held on May 2, but it has to be cancelled due to grievance presentations with the board on the evening of May 2. Thanks for being flexible with this date.
March 8, 2017 Rally at the Legislative Building

CUPE 3766 is pleased to share that one of our members was interviewed at the Rally. Make sure to check out the link below. Great job Valerie!


I thank the many who have already sent letters to their MLA's, and filled out the 3 petitions I asked you to sign. I'm sending you the links to the petitions again, and I'm asking you one final time, before the budget is released on March 22....if you've NOT filled out BOTH petitions, PLEASE DO SO NOW. Please note, I'm not yelling at you, only stressing the importance of everyone standing up for our children and our jobs! As previous emails stated, I can't do this alone, this executive cannot do this alone, it will take all 550 plus members to do this, and ask your family, friends, neighbours etc......Tuesday is our last day on these petitions....and it would be a beautiful sight if this government was overwhelmed by the responses. The links are as follows:

In response to the provincial government’s cuts, layoffs, threats of unpaid days off, and demanding public sector workers get a 3.5% pay cut, the SFL has created a letter that people can send to Premier Brad Wall telling him to stop the attack on public sector workers.
The letter is in support of the Own It! campaign, and can be found here:

Please go to the page, fill in your information, send a letter and then forward this email to anyone who might be interested.
From Larry Hubich President Saskatchewan Federation of Labour

The second petition needs a bit of explanation before you sign it. You will be asked to submit your first/last name, email/mailing addresses and postal code. These are the legalities when signing any petition. When you give this information on the links below (change.org), please unclick the boxes that state, "keep me updated on this campaign and other from CUPE Saskatchewan" and "display my name and comment on this petition" please note, you are not required to give any information on "I'm signing because" this is optional. Please click "sign".

It's important that you check our email within a few minutes after the above noted process, as the next step is on a 1 hour time limit. You will be notified by change.org via your email "just 1 more step", click the "log in". You will be notified that "you signed the" petition. You'll also see a notice that says, "Chip in $5 or more to help win this campaign", PLEASE DO NOT DONANTE ANY MONEY TO change.org as CUPE has already paid them for this service. One final note about signing petitions on change.org, you will receive other petitions to sign via your email. I simply delete the petitions, as I'm careful about choosing petitions to sign. Please sign as per your personal preference.
Here is the petition link:

The social media links to "where's the funding" campaign from the past week. Please watch the video from the leader post, Ashley Martin was wonderful! I'm grateful to the Leader-Post for producing this awesome video on front line education support workers message! It's about the kids! I hope Brad Wall wakes up, stop the cuts.

Check this one out!

Check out another one, FYI, I'm not an education rep, I'm a structured learning assistant.

This was the first one I did last Monday

One final medial outlet is the radio commercials have been playing since last Wednesday on C 95 (Saskatoon FM), Z 99 (Regina FM), CJME 980 (AM), and CKRM 620 (AM). We are still in the process of having the ads broadcasted on community radio. I've attached the files of the ads, so you can hear them.....in a few weeks I'll be running a new radio message, it will be our "Plan B".

Thank you

Continuation of Benefits Request Form - Important Information to Remember

If your doctor has requested for you not return to work and you've run out of banked sick days you may be considered on a leave of absence. You will receive a Continuation of Benefits Request Form. It must be filled out within 14 days.

Several members are placed in this situation every year. It is important for you to consider the form carefully, even if you're not currently in this situation. The form gives you options into paying or not paying for the following benefits: Pension, LTD, Extended Health & Dental and Life Insurance.

It's important to factor in that some of these benefits are very expensive, in particular on a reduced income. However, a few of the benefits are relatively in-expensive, for example the LTD and life Insurance Benefits.

You may choose not pay into these benefits due to your current situation, but if your situation changes; you may require one of these benefits and will no longer have an option of accessing the benefits. Once you choose to not pay into your benefits, your decision is final.

Please contact your Shop Steward, Jackie Christianson or Jo-ann Hincks (306-523-3034) if you require assistance in making decisions on your benefits.

Personal E-mail Loop and Shop Stewards: A Message from President Jackie Christianson

We are starting new with the personal email loop again. There are several new members in our system and several members who have resigned/retired. It is very difficult keeping up with these changes without your help!

Could one person in each school please check with our members in their school and ask if I have their email address? If our members do not wish to give out their personal email address, please make a list of their names and the email addresses you that you were able to get from our members and forward this information on to me at jackiechristianson@myaccess.ca

This seems to be the most effective way to communicate, along with our web-site, and then everyone should be informed of important information. Hope everyone is having a "smooth transition" into the new school year. Please let your shop stewards know if there are any concerns you have. They are very willing to help!

For a new list of shop stewards and their schools/email addresses, please check your school bulletin board for the list and/ or our web-site at www.cupe3766.com. Click on the "shop stewards" box. I really appreciate your help in this matter!
