Oct 2014

Hello all, Local 432 General Membership Meeting was held on September 17th, thanks to all who attended. Discussion and approval was provided for a $300 donation to support the local United Way campaign. Our Educational Bursary recipient was identified and the winner is Nic KingHill who is currently attending Queens University. Elections for the new Executive were held with all positions acclaimed except for the Secretary role, which is now held by Shirley Tyrrell. Check the members section for updated Executive Members. Thank you to all who have stepped forward to keep your local operating and supporting the 200+ members. A review of site stewards was held, check the members section to ensure you know who your stewards are, send an email to asklocal432@gmail.com if we have missed someone. At present we have 9 worksites without steward representation however we do have a few sights that are 1, 2 or 3 people offices. We are always looking for information stewards and active stewards as it's more about knowing who you can go to when you need representation or support from OPSEU. As we approach bargaining 2014, it is even more important that you are receiving information, showing solidarity in your work site and supporting the bargaining team. We NEED you to share information with your coworkers and stewards training is available for anyone interested in a more active role.

The 2014 2015 meeting schedule will be posted soon. \We hope to see more members in attendance at LEC meetings as we move toward the end of the OPS contract and as our BPS members continue their negotiations that are already underway!!
