Comrades and friends,
This next month will be a frenzy of debate on whether or not members should accept the contract extension recommended by the CUPW National Executive Board. Our local GMM and Executive have unanimously voted to reject National's proposal. This vote (dates pending) has deadly serious implications for the future of our jobs and union. Please take the time to inform yourself on all positions and make sure your contact info is updated so that you will be able to vote. All this information, as well as an invitation to a walk for peace co-hosted by our Health & Safety officer and city council candidate, Rashpal Sehmby, can be found below.
Aside: due to the need to focus on the contract extension vote, the newsletter renaming contest will postponed until further notice.
To stay aligned with the federal health guidelines affecting our members, our office remains locked and available by appointment only. We are trying to conduct all meetings with members over the phone or via video conferencing. Exemptions can be made for unique circumstances. In either case, please call (780) 423-9000 to arrange an appointment with the appropriate officer. We are extremely busy in the office so please leave a message if you’re unable to catch us on the phone.
