We thank those of you who participated in our November survey on work-related stress in the context of confinement. This survey was a follow-up to our May 2020 survey on work-related stress. Forty-one percent of members participated in our November survey, providing us with an update about the challenges they have been facing as a result of the ongoing pandemic.
The results of this latest survey indicate that, overall, members are reporting higher levels of stress in all facets of their work than were reported in May. The most significant increase in stress relates to teaching/professional tasks, where 47% of members reported experiencing high stress levels compared to 36% in May. This is a worrying trend, and we continue to negotiate Letters of Understanding aimed at coping with the situation.
A report of November survey findings is available at the following link.
