What does AUPE mean to me?

I am not alone;
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.
