CSRA Newsletter Summer 2021 Dear Sisters and Brothers,
We are heading toward midsummer with a bit of a spring in our steps as more and more of us are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. We hope that you are keeping well even with heat waves, intense storms and recurring reminders of Canada’s historical mistreatment of Indigenous peoples and the positive actions we can take for change.
Have you cast your ballot?
CRA Newsletter Fall 2020 Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Little did we know when your executive met last January that our fall meeting would be conducted online rather than face-to-face. Happily we are all managing to keep well in our new reality and hope the same is true for you.
Report on benefits for over-65s
Last year CRA contracted retired CUPE researcher Cheryl Stadnichuk to prepare a report looking at how provincial health services — and specifically drug plans — affect the benefits of CUPE retirees once they turn 65.
CRA Newsletter March 2020 Dear CUPE Retiree,
With winter travel underway and school breaks in many parts of the country, we want to ensure that you have received the latest information from Green Shield Canada related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). While many of you have received this information directly, we have found that many others are not receiving communiqués from Green Shield.
Please note the information on early refills of prescriptions in particular.
CRA Newsletter January 2020 Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Happy new year from your retirees’ association. Your new executive held its first face-to-face meeting at the Ottawa Area Office on January 20th where we reviewed our priorities for the year and approved a 2020 budget.
Communicating with members
A key priority will be getting information out to members on a regular basis. Don’t worry! We won’t fill your inbox. You should expect to get an email like this one at least twice a year, following executive meetings.
