MAY 2011

Hello to all our members in Local 432

Sometime during June, your local President Gail Williams and Vice President Bonnie Sweet will be meeting with your work unit stewards. This meeting will be held to discuss communication strategies for all of our members and to verify work unit information. We will be asking all unit stewards to verify information to ensure that our membership records are up to date and we have contact information for all our members.

Remember that we cannot use government email addresses to contact members during a work disruption, use the email link to send us your home email addresses to ensure we can contact you.

A letter will be coming your way soon to promote this website and share news of our localů.look for this in your mailbox sometime in May!

There is a Pre-Retirement Seminar coming to Brockville on June 4th & 5th which is offered to anyone within 3 years of retirement. Check out the poster in the upcoming events section of the website for more details and registration instructions.

The annual Region 4 Picnic is coming to Merrickville on June 25th. This is an annual event that has been organized and held at the Block House Park in Merrickville with lots of great family activities for all our members. RSVP details are included in the poster in the events section of the website with a due date of June 3rd.

Our next General Membership meeting is planned for September 13th in Kingston, 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm and our Regional Executive members will be in attendance. Mark the date in your calendar and take the time to meet with Smokey Thomas, David Lundy and Chris Cormier. The location has not yet been determined but the date has been set-don't miss this opportunity to talk to our regional representatives and your union president. Once we have a confirmed number of attendees we will share the location details, look to our website for further details in August! If you have questions you would like the OPSEU president to address, please submit them through the website email link.

The Local Executive Meeting (LEC) for April was cancelled as a result of convention activities. The minutes for March and May meetings will be posted soon, thanks to our newest volunteer Secretary Brigitte St. Coeur-Brown.
