This week, SREM CUPE 306 launched an advertising campaign to recognize their 2000 members working for municipalities in metropolitan Longueuil. The campaign known as “Votre sécurité, votre environnement, vos loisirs, vos questions, on y voit” (Your safety, your environment, your leisure and your questions – we’ve got you covered) has four themes that recognize the various work done by these members.
Advertising will run from April 27 to May 25, 2023 in the following newspapers - Courrier du Sud, La Relève and Les Versants – and on the Meta and Bell Media platforms.
The advertising shines the spotlight on eleven members of SREM CUPE 306 : Isabelle, a library manager; Mihail, a regulation inspector; Lidia, a librarian; Virginie, a fire prevention technician; Robert, a school crossing guard; Mélanie, a supervisor-lifeguard; Katy, a regulation technician; Dominique, an architecture and design adviser; Maryse, stage manager; Pascal, guard-dispatcher; and Ricardo Jose, supervisor-lifeguard.
“SREM members play a crucial role in a myriad of different ways every single day. For example, they ensure that infrastructures and worksites are safe, that environmental regulations are obeyed, that children can cross the street and use pools safely and that the public can get answers to their questions,” said Karine Laprise, president of SREM CUPE 306.
“In short, our members have irreplaceable know-how when it comes to providing quality services to the public in metropolitan Longueuil. They are proud of their work and often go about their duties in the background. By recognizing them and ensuring that our towns retain their expertise, we improve the quality of services provided and avoid the waste associated with contracting out,” added Laprise.
The SREM CUPE 306 represent more than 2000 members in 350 different job categories in the five towns that make up metropolitan Longueuil : Boucherville, Brossard, Longueuil, Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville and Saint-Lambert. They oversee the enforcement of about a dozen collective agreements covering office employees, technicians, professionals, school crossing guards and pool employees,” added Karine Laprise.
