President's Blog – March 11, 2021

Sisters and Brothers,

Government of Canada is designating March 11, 2021, as a National Day of Observance to commemorate the people who lost their lives and the significant impacts we have all felt because of COVID-19.

Since the pandemic began, 2.5 million people around the world have died due to COVID-19, with more than 22,000 of them in Canada.

CUPW Toronto Local mourns for each loss of life. Our GTA postal facilities was the hardest hit by COVID-19 across the CUPW family.

COVID-19 has an "immeasurable impact" on how we work, learn, connect with others, live our daily lives, our mental health and stress.

The Toronto Local recognize everyone who has been impacted by COVID-19, and salute to all those who continue to show up at work and make incredible sacrifices in the fight against the virus, while we continue to serve the public every day.

We mourn the death of our fallen members during this pandemic.

One loss of life is one too many. Together, we will beat COVID-19.

In Solidarity
