PR Campaign Kick Off: Phase Two

Dear Members,

We're thrilled to share the incredible success of Phase One in our reputation-building campaign! Thanks to your support, our efforts led to a remarkable 28% increase in Edmontonians' overall opinion of CSU 52. This achievement is a testament to the vital role our members play in shaping life in Edmonton.

Phase One focused on creating awareness about our contributions and value. As we move forward, we're excited to introduce Phase Two: Activation. This phase, launching on September 2nd and spanning the entire month, aims to channel the newfound awareness into action.

In Phase Two, we'll address the challenges our members face with bargaining. We'll shed light on more critical issues such as the rising cost of living, doing more with fewer resources, and the impact of inflation on stagnant wages. It's time to rally together for a fair bargaining agreement.

Here's what to expect in Phase Two:

  • Updated Website: The campaign website, is updated and live, providing you with valuable resources and ways to take action
  • Letter Writing Campaign: We are asking everyone to write a letter to their City Councillor, expressing support for fair bargaining
  • Engaging Content: Look out for TV, radio, print, and online ads. Together we will highlight the challenges faced by all Edmontonians
  • Social Engagement: Don't forget to like, share, and follow us on social media if you haven't already. Your engagement amplifies our collective voice.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication. Together we will create positive change for CSU 52 members and all Edmontonians.

Lanny Chudyk
