Oct/Nov 2011

Hello to all members of Local 432,

Thank you to all our members who took the time to show your support for labour friendly candidates in our communities and for voicing your opinion through the ballot box! We now have a minority government and promises of Mr. McGuinty to "finish what he started" which for OPS members means another large layoff. Check out the October 2011 MERC Chair update for details of how our executive members are preparing to continue the battle against job cuts and public service cuts.

There is a line in the MERC update that we will hear many times in the months ahead "Alone, there's not much we can do; together, there is not much we can't do!"

With all of the election activity you may have missed the announcement of our 1st Bursary winner, Felicia Brown. Take a look at the cheque presentation photo in our FAQ/Info section. A huge thank you to Bursary Committee members Sherry Corbay and Sandra Foley for the tireless efforts to re-establish the education bursary for our local.

OPSEU Local 432 now has a facebook page, check it out http://www.facebook.com/Local432

We will be celebrating the holiday season this year at the Kingston Brew Pub, Private Party Room on December 17th, 2011 with cocktails at 6pm, dinner at 7pm. Check the poster for further details, RSVP by email to asklocal432@gmail.com by December 9th. Please add the poster to your worksite union information boards.

As always, if you have questions send them through the email link or check with your work site steward.
