Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The union has just received this update regarding your retention incentive from the employer. CUPE Local 786 also wants to thank you so much for all of your hard work and support during this difficult time. Your humility, kindness and strength are greatly appreciated. There are no words to adequately thank you. As a gesture CUPE Local 786 will make sure that no dues are to be taken off your retention incentive.
