Welcome back everyone! We hope you all enjoyed your summer holidays with family and friends.
Local bargaining is ongoing. The CUPE Bargaining Committee met with the Employer’s Bargaining Committee July 9th and 11th and proceedings went well. We are meeting again on September 4th and 19th and will share limited information at the General Meeting on September 21st which begins at 9:30 a.m. We will also be meeting on September 24th and 30th for local bargaining.
The CUPE Welcome Back BBQ will follow the General Meeting on the 21st around 11:00 a.m. at Hollywood Road.
Once again, postings will start September 3rd or 4th. Also, a reminder that there will be a new HR Manager doing the postings so we encourage you to please read them carefully.
