Email Update Process Announcement

In an effort to continue to connect and communicate with our members, your Local has been able to access an email platform (MailChimp) and we are ready to gather personal email contact so we can send out our regular updates.

We are asking all CUPE Local 5047 members to visit our webpage, and look for the form where you can enter your name and personal email address so you can receive emails from the Local. The form will be on the right-hand side of our website if you are using a laptop/desktop computer. If accessing the website on your phone, the form most likely will be on the bottom of the page, just a few thumb scrolls down.  *please note – you must use your first and last name as it appears on your paystub and correspondence from the HRCE. As well, you must use a different email address from your HRCE email, as the platform used currently will not be HRCE addresses. * Once registered, the email account you provided will receive an email to confirm you provided the information, and will need to click acceptance to have emails sent to you. (Many thanks to those members who provided their email addresses previously for OH&S information, those will be added to a list for specific site based OH&S information. As well, we appreciate those who have sent forward their personal emails already, and attempts were made to add those to the list we generated from the HRCE, but without much success. Using the website to input your contact information will not result in you receiving the same information twice.)

To run our online services, such as web-based email, member surveys, events and newsletters, we need to be able to check to see that our users are who they say they are. That means collecting personal information like names, email addresses, classifications, etc. We acknowledge that this is important and personal information and we acknowledge the responsibility that comes with it. We take your privacy seriously. We will never sell, trade, rent or donate any information you give us. We will honour all unsubscribe requests, whether automatically or by email to . None of our interactive services will display your email address publicly. We will contact you by email about CUPE 5047 news, announcements, meetings, member updates and events. During the unsettling times we are in, we wish to be able to broadcast again any and all verified information and best support our members.

Thank you for your understanding and help! Hopefully this will allow us to connect with all our members quickly and successfully!

In Solidarity,


Chris Melanson
