Reminder - GMM - Wednesday February 17th - Eastview SS

Thank you to everyone who wore PINK today to support our local bargaining team! 
A reminder that tomorrow (Wednesday) is our General Membership Meeting at Eastview Secondary School. Registration for the meeting begins at 5:30, and the meeting will start at 6 pm. Pizza will be served during the registration period.

Unfortunately, we have had to remove the guest speaker from the agenda, as the speaker had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances and we were unable to find a replacement. We will continue to arrange presentations and have guest speakers for future GMM's. If you have any suggestions or interests for presentation topics or guest speakers, please feel free to contact the local office.

GMM's provide an opportunity to ask questions and seek clarity on local issues. 

We will be collecting the Form B's ("strike pay form") at the meeting, if you have not yet sent them to the OPSEU 330 office

See you tomorrow!


Form B - Strike Preparations

Recently, Local 330 distributed forms regarding strike pay to either your school or mailed to your home, if you are a supply staff. The forms are being distributed as a preparatory measure as part of the process of getting ready for a strike not because we are in a Strike position. If you do not fill out the form there may be a delay if strike pay is needed. If you are unable to get your union membership number, leave it blank and it will be filled in at the office. The LEC (Local Executive Committee) signature will be completed at the office, as the forms are received.

Bargaining Day - Tuesday February 16th

A big thank you to everyone who has been wearing pink on Thursdays to support your local bargaining team. This Monday is a holiday, so we wanted to get the word out that your bargaining team will be meeting with the employer on Tuesday February 16th, so we're asking everyone to wear pink that day to support your bargaining team and convey the message to the employer that we are united in solidarity behind our team.
We hope to see you all Wednesday February 17th for the General Membership Meeting at Eastview!
