CUPE 3175 Annual Scholarship Application Form

Every year, CUPE Local 3175 will provide a $500 scholarship for education purposes to one of its current members. (By-Law Section 5 (d)). The education should directly be of benefit to the Union.

The member applying must have completed a degree, diploma or certificate by the June Membership Meeting.  The degree, diploma or certificate cannot have been for a requirement of their current job and must have been a minimum of 1 year in length.

The Executive Board will have final say on eligibility for the scholarship. All eligible members will be entered into a draw, with the winner to be chosen at the June Membership Meeting.

Once you have completed the form please submit it to the Treasurer.

Equality Statement

Union solidarity is based on the principle that union members are equal and deserve mutual  respect at all levels.  Any behaviour  that creates conflict prevents us from working together to strengthen our union.

As unionists, mutual respect, cooperation and understanding are our goals.  We should neither condone nor tolerate behavior that undermines the dignity or self-esteem of any individual or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment.

Discriminatory speech or conduct which is racist, sexist, transphobic or homophobic hurts and thereby divides us.  So too, does discrimination on the basis of ability, age, class, religion, language and ethnic origin.

Sometimes discrimination takes the form of harassment.  Harassment means using real or perceived power to abuse, devalue or humiliate.  Harassment should not be treated as a joke.  The uneasiness and resentment that it creates are not feelings that help us grow as a union.

Discrimination and harassment focus on characteristics that make us different; and they reduce our capacity to work together on shared concerns such as decent wages, safe working conditions, and justice in the workplace, society and in our union.

CUPE’s policies and practices must reflect our commitment to equality.  Members, staff and elected officers must be mindful that all sisters and brothers deserve dignity, equality and respect.
