It is with a heavy heart that the Union of Professional Educators – Voice of the Workers would like to inform our members that one of our executive members, Rita Catania, was involved in a very serious accident and is currently in critical condition in the ITU.
Our friend, and colleague, Rita, was run over by a vehicle in an indoor parking on Tuesday the 29th of September 2020, where she was on the way to get to her car. She was rushed to hospital and was immediately operated upon. Unfortunately, she has suffered significant head and brain injuries and to date she is still unconscious. How the situation is going to evolve and the if, or when, of her recovery is as yet unknown.
The union will keep its members updated on the progress of Rita’s condition. The family regrets not being able to be in touch with all who have been calling, and the many more who are likely to be attempting to make contact. The family, and the UPE, however, will truly appreciate your keeping Rita in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
