To help members stay safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Society of United Professionals is offering to send each member a cloth mask at no cost. Click here to reserve your mask today.
The masks are union-made in Canada from 100% organic cotton material and feature a Society logo so members can show their union pride at work and in the community.
Each member is entitled to one mask and may purchase additional masks at cost from https://shop.thesociety.ca. Members may purchase additional masks using their Level UP points earned for participation in Society activities and campaigns. Find out how many points you have by looking at your profile in the Members Portal.
Public health experts’ advice on mask-wearing has evolved over the course of the pandemic. Masks are now strongly recommended and in some municipalities, such as Ottawa and now Toronto and Brampton, will be required when using services like public transit. Masks are especially important when you are in common indoor areas (such as stores) or in outdoor locations where you cannot keep 2 metres apart from people who are not part of your household.
