Virtual Meeting Guidelines

Until public health guidance changes to allow for groups of more than 50 people to meet in a single physical location, our local will continue to conduct our Committee, Executive, and GMM meetings over video conference. This is far from ideal, but the best we can hope for given the circumstance. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Meeting Access

Any CUPW 730 member with a computer or smartphone and an internet connection is able to participate in our virtual GMMs via free video conferencing. Those wishing to attend the meeting that do not own, or have access to, a computer or smartphone, or need a sign-language aid, should contact our office [union@cupwedm.net or 780-423-9000 ext. 1 or 2].
