If I were to ask you: “how are you doing today”, your answer would likely be the usual response of “fine” or “okay”. But how are you really doing? An initiative is being launched to encourage a mentally healthy workplace. The following video will help explain the program being promoted by the Canadian Mental Health Association and the IAM EAP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qau7f9kpR5U&feature=youtu.be
The IAM Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available for all employees and encourages workers to seek help with not only mental health issues but any issue of a personal nature.
For more details contact your local rep for login information. Contact information is available in the EAP section from the home page.
So, how are you doing today?
For those that may not know there is a fairly active Canada wide community of Air Canada and Aveos workers, some current but mainly retired, who are involved in the Pionairs, a group established to encourage keeping in touch with friendships made during our working years.
Other activities see the Pionair group providing information on pension and health benefit changes and giving voice to our collective concerns at a national level. As well they hold organized social gatherings throughout the year to provide members a way to stay in touch or to meet new friends.
The following document will share some of what has been going on in Manitoba:
Since March 2012 a regular meeting for breakfast has taken place on a fairly regular basis. These social gatherings keep our kindred spirit alive and is not just for those retired. Anyone with available time is encouraged to break bread with friends and to enjoy the fellowship of having worked at Air Canada/Aveos. The next scheduled breakfast is slated for Saturday January 26 2019. Full details can be found in the following:
