UNI: Ice storm crisis update
Good news for UNI’s clientele: all of our business locations are now open and all ATMs are operational. Once again, our employees worked tirelessly to improve the situation. At the worst of the crisis, on Wednesday, January 25, 38 of our 51 business locations were closed and 45 of our 94 ATMs were out of service because of power outages.
UNI sensitive, flexible and available
Knowing that many felt, and might still feel, stressed because of unforeseen expenses, UNI’s employees remain available to help and support its clients in the best way possible. Many of our business locations open their doors as early as 9 am and the Dieppe and Caraquet business locations are opened on Saturday mornings. Details on business hours are available in the Business Locator section of our Website at www.uni.ca/en/contact.
A fundraising activity that helps
Since last Tuesday, members of the public are able to make donations by walking in UNI business locations and using the Verglas Acadie 2017 special account. Earlier this week, to start things off, UNI made a $25,000 donation. Our teams, made up of six associative affairs agents, made tremendous efforts on the field to help affected communities. They effectively distributed these funds based on the needs of the communities and, above all, in collaboration with municipal authorities and existing organizations. In fact, almost $18,000 of the $25,000 envelope has already been used and Wednesday, public donations had reached $5,000. Furthermore, people should now be able to donate via AccèsD through our www.uni.ca Website.
