President's Message Week of November 15th 2021

We want to acknowledge that the current workload is beyond challenging for many of you, violence is at an all-time high, and that we are in a challenging time with regard to accessing casual staff. We have requested a meeting immediately with the employer to look at these issues. In the meantime, we wanted to highlight the employee assistance program offered by UGDSB (See below). This program is completely confidential and free. If you are struggling at work or personally, please reach out to this program. Please also make us aware of the situations at your worksites.


Upper Grand Employee Assistance Program

If you are finding yourself or a family member or a colleague is needing additional support or resources please refer to the board's employee and family assistance program. This service is free and confidential. The board is not given the names of members who are using the service. It has been a challenging year with COVID and many of us are dealing with other challenges unrelated to COVID. This resource may be of help to members who need it.

Access the Upper Grand District School Board’s Employee & Family Assistance Program 24/7 by phone, web or mobile app 1-800-387-4765 | www.workhealthlife.com
