CUPE 3339’s UNB Children’s Christmas Party

On behalf of the Good & Welfare Committee:

Reminder that the deadline to register for this event is today!

It’s coming! It’s coming! CUPE 3339 Elves are everywhere secretly preparing for the annual Children’s Christmas Party! The party will be held on Saturday, December 21, 2019 in the Hans W. Klohn Commons from 10am until noon.

The invitation is open to children and grandchildren (0-12 years) of Staff and Faculty from UNB Saint John.  Registration forms are available from Administrative Assistants and should be sent to Kim Booker in Irving Hall Room 221 once completed. The final deadline to register is Friday, Nov 22. Due to planning requirements, we are unable to accept registrations after that date.

This year, as always, we like to spread the spirit to the community. The Joshua Group’s hope is to provide a gift for 222 vulnerable children between ages 4 – 18. We would like to be part of that hope, therefore the Good and Welfare Committee is asking for a minimum donation of $10 from each family to help Santa and his elves.  Donations can be made at the party and your generosity is greatly appreciated!

2019 CUPE Breakfast

CUPE 3339 will be holding our Annual Christmas Breakfast Buffet on Tuesday, December 17 starting at 7:30am in the Baird Dining Hall. We will be nice and cozy next to the tree and fireplace!

We have received permission from Dr. Hauf for attendees to have the time off, meaning you will not have to return to work that day until 9:30am. There will be plenty to eat and maybe a gift or two to be had. Please join your fellow CUPE brothers & sisters and help celebrate this beautiful season!

We will be asking, as usual, for a $25 deposit (post-dated cheque accepted). Your deposit will be returned to you when you arrive at the party. If you don’t attend, your deposit will not be returned.

Please email Kim before Monday, November 25 at to RSVP. Also, all deposits must be given to Tammy Hicks in the mailroom by this date.

We will be collecting donations for the Joshua Group at this event as well as at the Children’s Christmas Party.

22nd Annual Summer Social

Good food along with the great company of your union brothers and sisters!
What more could you want?

This year’s social will take place on Saturday, June 8th from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Michael Thomas will be hosting us at his home once again.

As always, we will be offering you the choice of lobster or steak. Best menu in town! You will have the choice of one 2 pound lobster/one steak, or two steaks and, yes, you can even have two lobsters at 2 pounds each!

Once again, a $25.00 deposit is required. Your money will be returned to you when you arrive at the party (yes, we accept postdated cheques).

Cheque / money will NOT be returned if you do not show up.
Rain or shine the Summer Social happens!

Please RSVP to Laura Devlin by e-mail ( on or before Friday, May 17th (we have to know ASAP as we have a deadline for ordering the lobster).

Deposits can be dropped off or mailed to Laura Devlin (Hazen Hall 15) or Tammy Hicks (Mail Room) and are due by May 17th.

Season of Giving

In the spirit of Christmas, CUPE 3339 will be accepting baby food and cash donations for the North End food bank at both the breakfast and the children’s party!

Donations will be accepted at both events but can also be dropped off to Tammy Hicks at the UNBSJ Mailroom.

Make this season brighter for others with your generous donations!

Wrap It Up!

It’s that time again. The Good/Welfare Committee is looking for people to help wrap all the toys for the Children’s Christmas party.

The wrapping will take place at 4:00pm on Tuesday December 18th in the Faculty/Staff Lounge.
