Bill 115 Charter Challenge/Meeting with Warren 'Smokey' Thomas

On Friday, OPSEU announced that a settlement has been reached as a result of the Bill-115, Charter of Rights Challenge. In April 2016, it was ruled that Bill 115 violated the Canadian Charter or Rights and Freedoms, as the government “made it impossible for true collective bargaining to take place.”

This Tuesday night, June 6th, (link to flyer) our local is hosting a “Special” General Membership Meeting with Warren “Smokey” Thomas, President of OPSEU. This is your chance to ask Smokey questions about the Bill 115 Settlement, the Benefit Trust, specific questions about OPSEU and it’s function, Central Negotiations and any other questions you may have. This is your opportunity to meet with OPSEU directly.

Please join our Local Executive on Tuesday evening to show OPSEU, that Local 330 is involved, motivated and united!

Registration beginning at 5:45 pm, with meeting called to order at 6:30 pm.

See you there!

 

SPECIAL GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING, JUNE 6th, 2017 at 6:30.

Further to our post/email on May 11, 2017 and as announced at February's General Membership meeting, we are happy to be hosting a 'Special' General Membership Meeting with OPSEU President Warren "Smokey" Thomas as the special guest.  This meeting is one of the outcomes of Kelly, our President's work late last year, as detailed in our update here.
This is your chance to come and ask the President of the Union any questions you may have!

 DATE MOVED - **OMERS Evening – In follow up to the post/email on April 28, 2017. SAVE THE DATE - We have also scheduled an evening group meeting, “Understanding Your Pension” for June 5th, 2017. Flyer and information will be sent out by May 12, 2017.

My apologies for not sending out notice by May 12th as noted on the previous message. I was waiting to hear back from OMERS with other possible meeting date options, respecting the challenges and busy schedules, I was hesitant to host evening meetings back to back. OMERS confirmed rescheduling the OMERS Evening, from June 5th to June 19th.

A flyer with location and information will follow, as I have to confirm a meeting location due to the change in date.
 
We hope to see you out on June 6th for our Special Membership Meeting!
