Yesterday, a CUPE paramedic local in Windsor-Essex published a concerning twitter thread that does not reflect the beliefs and values of our union, including those of the vast majority of first responders who are vaccinated.

CUPE has always encouraged members to get vaccinated to protect themselves, their family, and their community. But the work is undeniably unfinished.

We continue to call on members to follow public health guidelines, and to keep instilling confidence in the communities that rely on the critical services we deliver.
