A Word of Caution When Using Social Media

Please use caution when using social media websites such as: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. It is a privilege to work with students, families and staff in our school system every day.

To avoid discipline and to maintain respectful relationships in schools we need to ensure the confidentially of all students, families and staff. Please make sure your comments/pictures/videos are appropriate. If in doubt, leave it out! Take care out there!

Employee Incident Report

You can find copies of Employee Incident Reports by clicking on the Forms tab above. You can also request a copy of this report from your principal and/or administrative assistant.

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.

If you do not have access to a computer, please contact your school and ask your administrator to submit your leave request through the Atrieve system. Prior to submitting the following information, you must log into the Atrieve system to register your leave online. You may request casual/sub coverage when you are absent by calling 306-546-2088.

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!

Email Communication with our Members

This CUPE 3766 Website was designed to improve communication with our members as previous email communication was hampered by inaccurate or outdated email addresses, emails being blocked by spam and other filters, and limits placed on email frequency and content. With this website we can provide a wealth of information with ease of access for all members. We hope that all members are checking the website regularly for updates. Contact information is also available on the website for shop stewards and the executive. Unfortunately we still have a number of members that are not receiving information in a timely manner. President Jackie frequently emails shop stewards information for them to pass on to our memebers. If you would like to be included in these emails directly, then you must send your personal email address to Jackie at jackiechristianson@myaccess.ca Don't forget to add her email address to your email contact list so hopefully her emails to you will not be blocked by your filters. Please remember that we cannot control your email service and that the most effective source for information is this website, so please check it regularly and encourage your fellow members to also check it out.
