CUPE 382 President.
We are all mourning the tragic loss of one of our Union brothers, Josh Bennett. Many CUPE382 members worked closely with Josh and knew him outside of the workplace. This is a difficult time for all.
A GoFundMe page has been set up by a friend of the family to help with the cost of funeral services. At this time of sorrow, we can try to lift at least some of the burden that the family is experiencing right now. We encourage everyone to contribute what they are able to. On Friday, April 5th, there will be condolence cards in the Facilities lunch room for people to sign.
You can visit the GoFundMe page by clicking the following link: https://www.gofundme.com/885d7-funeral-expenses?utm_source=internal&utm_medium=email&utm_content=campaign_title&utm_campaign=donation_receiptv5
Please remember that there are services available for those who need it. Do not hesitate to reach out to for help.
