On behalf of the Membership Services and Members’ Benefits committees, Vice-President Glen Scott receives a $2,500 donation for AUPE bursaries and scholarships from Tara Thorleifson of the Co-operators insurance and financial services.
The Alberta Union of Provincial Employees is pleased to celebrate Administrative Professionals Week, April 19–25, with the thousands of members whose hard work keeps their worksites – and the province – running smoothly.
“Administrative professionals are the backbone of our worksites,” said AUPE President Guy Smith. “Their highly specialized skillsets and ability to adapt to changing technologies support many organizations that are working to achieve change and innovation. Without them, our workplaces would be chaotic, inefficient, and stagnant.”
For two weeks, these members volunteered on AUPE’s phone bank, calling fellow members and urging them to get out and vote in the provincial election on May 5.
