BURNABY—On Wednesday, April 14 CUPE members will be donning pink shirts – for the second time this year – to participate in B.C.’s “Stop Bullying Day.” CUPE members also wore pink on February 26 to mark Canada-wide Stop Bullying Day. The date for B.C.’s participation was changed because of the Olympics.
Locals and members can order No Bullying T-shirts at a cost of $15 each from CUPE BC. Shirts will be available to ship on February 19 and can be ordered through Shirley Loftus at 604-291-9119.
Please e-mail photos to [email protected] and we’ll post them to our web site.
