Take the survey to chart CUPE’s response to Canada’s opioid crisis

Take the survey to chart CUPE’s response to Canada’s opioid crisisAt our 2017 National Convention, members called for CUPE to respond to the crisis by lobbying the federal government to do more to address the problem and help save lives.

The opioid crisis is a growing problem across Canada, affecting CUPE members and families across the country. The causes are multi-faceted and there is no consensus around how it should be solved. Too many people are needlessly suffering or dying, and the toll keeps rising. Our governments must do more to address this public health crisis.

As a CUPE member, you know that our members work with the public and work in public spaces. You know how the opioid crisis is harming our communities. You may know someone outside of work whose life has been affected.

Some of you have jobs that require you to respond directly to the opioid crisis. Even if you’re not required to provide a direct response, you are likely to encounter opioid-related issues in your workplace, such as discarded needles, drug use, overdoses and fatalities.

That’s why we invite all our members to take our new survey on Canada’s opioid crisis.

We want to hear from you – take the survey

We’re inviting all CUPE members to participate in our online survey to help us chart our response to the opioid crisis. Your experiences and knowledge will help us to learn more about how the crisis impacts you at work, and how you think our governments should respond to it.

To participate, simply fill out the online survey at the following link:

Responses to the survey are anonymous and confidential.
