What does AUPE mean to me?

I belong;

I am protected;

I am visible;

I have a voice;

My opinion does matter;

I have a big team of professionals looking out for me to ensure:

my rights are protected;

my job is secured;

my benefits are upheld;

my entitlement is maintained and reasonable;

my working environment is healthy and fair.
