In a letter sent to health care sector locals, CUPE National President Paul Moist and CUPE National Secretary-Treasurer Claude Généreux wish a happy Nursing Week to all of CUPE’s nursing team.

Nursing week is a time for us to thank and recognize all of our CUPE nurses and allied health care staff in the nursing team that includes: personal support workers, continuing care attendants, health care aides and others. Speaking on behalf of CUPE, we appreciate the fundamental work you do in meeting the health care needs of Canadians.”

CUPE nurses and other health care workers make up a nursing team that responds to the health care needs of all of us 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Your high quality health care practice gains you respect in all areas of health care – whether it be in community settings or in people’s homes, long-term care or in hospitals. CUPE applauds your passion and commitment to caring, and remains committed to advocating with you for full scope of practice and high quality working and caring environments.”
