Bulletin - SSIRRE support staff survey

Chance at prizes for K-12 CUPE members that participate

The Support Staff Initiative for Recruitment and Retention Enhancement (SSIRRE) is asking CUPE members to participate in a short online survey gathering information about recruitment and retention for support staff in the public education system.

The results of this survey will be shared with both the support staff unions and the school employers to inform collective bargaining in 2022.

This survey is not to be confused with the CUPE K-12 bargaining survey. Both are important to participate in – the bargaining survey will be coming soon.

The SSIRRE is a joint project of the BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) and CUPE and the Support Staff Union's K-12 Presidents Council.

The survey is anonymous, takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, and respondents can enter a draw for cash prizes.

There will be 42 draw prizes, on the following schedule. The earlier you complete the survey, the better your chance to win a prize.

If you choose to participate in the draw and provide valid contact information, you will be entered one (1) time into each draw that happens subsequently on this schedule:

- November 17: 6 prizes of $200 each

- November 24: 12 prizes of $100 each

- December 1: 24 prizes of $50 each

Participants will only be eligible to win one draw. Winner's names will also be used for the purposes of promoting the survey during the remainder of the survey period. Your name in the draw cannot be connected with your survey responses.

The survey closes December 1. You will receive several reminders to complete the survey, but your participation is voluntary.
