Benefit Trust Update & General Membership Meeting- Save the Date

The OCEW – Ontario Council of Education Workers met on April 10th, to review and finalize the new plan details. OPSEU Staff Negotiator, Anastasios Zafiriadis has confirmed a few details with me that I wanted to send out while we wait for an official OCEW update. He has confirmed that the new date of June 1st , 2018, has been set as the plan rollover date by the Council and OTIP. He further explained that Website registration instructions and plan information will be sent to all “currently enrolled” benefit plan members by Mid-May. The last few details are requiring signatures to finalize and approve the plan structure and once they are received, the official update with more details will be sent out.

While we recognize that the change in benefit plans has been an enhancement through Central Bargaining that many have been patiently waiting for, the process of implementation and accurate timelines and information has been painstaking. We are happy to know that we are very close to being a part of the Benefit Trust.  

Due to the change in the Benefit Trust rollover date back in April, I had decided to wait to schedule our Spring General Membership meeting until I had some finalized information of the plan. Based on what has recently been confirmed, we will be having our Spring General Membership Meeting on May 15th , at Ferndale Banquet Hall in Barrie. The Executive and I, have decided to make the General Membership meeting, an OPSEU Local 330 Social Event, combined with a meeting.  There will be live music before and after the meeting, hors d’oeuvres and snacks,a cash bar will be open, and there will be lots of door prizes to give away!

We hope that you will come out and mingle with your 330 Team and it’s Fabulous members! Flyer and agenda to follow.  Save the Date – evening of May 15th, 2018.

It’s important to be informed and educated about your union and your right’s! This is an opportunity to bring your concerns, ask question or just listen to the information shared.

Looking forward to seeing you,
Kelly Martin
President

Reminder - Special General Membership Meeting, June 6th 2017, Ferndale Banquet Hall.

Just a reminder that on Tuesday June 6th at the Ferndale Banquet Hall, we are holding a special General Membership Meeting with the President of OPSEU, Warren 'Smokey' Thomas. Doors will open at 5:45 and the meeting will be called to order at 6:30.

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!
Please see the attached flyer with the location and details for the meeting.

 

 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!

Sincerely,
Kelly
