Bill 115 Remedy and Central Benefit Trust Updates.

Bill 115 Remedy Update 

The Ministry has proceeded with the Transfer Payments to the school boards. OPSEU and the Board are confirming the list of payees with the expectation to have the monies paid by the end of February. As soon as I have received confirmation of payment details I will send an update.  

Bill 115 Remedy is for members of OPSEU who worked for the Simcoe County District School Board in the school years, 2012-2013 and 2013-2014. Please ensure OPSEU and the School Board have your current and up to date information, i.e. mailing address, name changes. If you are a current employee, you are required to update this information with HR at the board when this information changes.   If you are a retired employee please contact OPSEU 330. If you have any questions please contact the office at 705-739-7232 or by email at opseu330@bellnet.ca.  

Benefit Trust  

The next Central Benefit Trust meeting is scheduled for February 14th and an update will be provided following the meeting. As of last week, I, (Kelly), am now representing OPSEU and OCEW on the Central Benefit Trust Committee and will attend the next meeting.  

 

I understand your continued frustration with how slow things have gone, in moving both Agreements to fruition, considering the financial impact both will have. No one would be happier to have these items in place and resolved to their entirety than me.  As both agreements are progressing forward, there aren't changes and updates as often as we would like and please trust that when I have information to share I will and if I am not sharing, I am waiting for an update. Once there is information to share as always, it will be posted on the opseu330.com Website, our Facebook page and Twitter, and an email will be sent to our membership email list. 

 

Sincerely,  

Kelly Martin 
President 

Two Recent Press Releases from OPSEU and OCEW

Many of you may have received an email blast directed at the members of OPSEU's Sector 3 - Boards of Education and Cultural Institutions, if OPSEU Communications has ever received your email address. For the benefit of the members who are not on OPSEU corporate email lists, we have added the press release here. It details the important first step in negotiations on our path to our new benefit plan. We will have more detailed information as the negotiation process continues, but this step needed to happen before the rest of the process can continue.

For the past few years at the OPSEU Convention, OPSEU has been attempting to showcase the talents of the members of the union across the province. This year, they have added the chance to win even more money on your journey to union Stardom! If you can sing, dance, tell jokes, or have other entertaining talents, you can enter for a chance to win up to $1500 bucks in the Region, and a chance to win more at the Convention. If you're interested, click on the link for more information!

 

Expect a more indepth update very soon.

Violence in the Workplace Rally

Violence in the Workplace Rally at the Education Centre

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 at 5:15-7:15 pm

Please join us outside the Simcoe County District School Board Office for the “Violence in the Workplace-Take Action Now!” Rally. We will be sharing information to the public, the trustees, and other people attending the October 25th Board meeting.  

We want the school board to take immediate action on addressing workplace violence, for all school board employees and students. We want staff safety a priority; concerns regarding transitions and transition planning addressed to ensure staff and student safety; recognition and compliance with Risk Assessments and Re-Assessments; staff and Supervisors trained to ensure an understanding of the Ontario Health and Safety Act, and the requirements of advising staff of potential risks they may encounter when working with students with a violent history; and compliance when working with the Joint Health and Safety Committee representatives.   

Please come and help us share this message! Its time for them to “take action!”

The rally will take place between 5:15-7:15 pm. Rally participants are encouraged to wear reflective clothing, as it may be dark. We will provide reflective tape and have some safety reflective vests that people can wear. Light refreshments will be provided by OPSEU Local 330.

You are encouraged to park at the carpool lot at the Hwy 26/27 junction and carpool close to the entrance of the Board Office.  Keep in mind if you are making any signs that they would need to show up in the dark.  You may also want to bring flashlights.

If you have any questions please contact opseu330@bellnet.ca or call the office at 705-739-7232.

Kelly Martin
