To all members of CUPE 2950 :
On behalf of the CUPE 2950 Executive Board and office staff, it is with great sadness that we inform you that Brother Richard Hare passed away suddenly on August 9th. For the past 30 years, Richard was a library assistant in Koerner Library working in the Borrower Services Division.
For 20+ years, he served on the CUPE 2950 Executive board as your union’s Health and Safety Committee Chair and representative at the joint University Health and Safety Committee. Richard was a dedicated advocate for health and safety on campus, working to ensure that local safety committees were functional and had representation from CUPE 2950. He diligently worked to push the employer to recognize that ergonomics play an important role in healthy and safe working conditions.
A celebration of life will be held on Friday August 26th from 12:30-3:00pm at Brock House (3875 Point Grey Road) – on the patio on the north side of the house. If possible please let the union office know if you plan to attend.
By request of the family, in lieu of flowers we will be making a donation in Richard’s name to the Wilderness Committee .
Karen Ranalletta (President CUPE 2950)
