BURNABY, BC – CUPE represents members who work in libraries across all sectors in B.C. In recognition of the increasing number of issues coming forward, the CUPE BC Library Committee has launched a survey to look at changing health and safety conditions for CUPE members in library workplaces across B.C.

The survey will give CUPE important information about what the health and safety issues are for CUPE’s library workers. Once the results are compiled, this will be a useful tool in advocating for improvements.

The survey is open to all CUPE members who work in library workplaces in B.C., including public libraries, school and campus libraries. It will be available online and open from May 15 to June 30, 2015. Members are encouraged to respond to the online survey, but a printed version can be downloaded for those who prefer a paper version.

For more information please contact CUPE’s B.C. Library Sector Coordinator.  Information about the CUPE BC Library Committee is available at cupebclibraries.ca.
