Seasons Greetings to all NUPE Members

The NUPE office will be closing at mid-day on Thursday, 22 December.  The office will be fully open again on Wednesday, 11 January 2023.

NUPE wants to ensure that all the NUPE staff get a good annual leave break so the office will be shut during this period.

There will be an on-call organiser over this period available for emergency/ health and safety matters only.  All other matters will be responded to when the office reopens. The on-call cell phone number will be on the NUPE answer phone and the website.  Leave a message about the problem on the on-call cell phone and you will be phoned back during the break if the matter is urgent.

The on-call organiser will not be attending meetings unless it is an urgent health and safety matter.

Ring 03 377 3582 for on call details.
