Latest News (Friday March 17, 2023):
Thanks to those of you who attended one of our meetings on Tuesday March 14.
The pay equity honorarium has passed by a majority vote. Our negotiating committee bylaw vote passed with the necessary two thirds to make the change to a 6 member committee.
This means that for this bargaining session the president and vice president in the city where the president doesn’t reside will automatically sit on the committee and the other 4 members will be two members at large from EDM and two members at large from CGY.
If you would like to be part of the pay equity committee – we need 1 more person in EDM and 2 in CGY – please reach out to Luc Tremblay for information.
If you would like to be part of the bargaining committee you will need to fill out a nomination form.
All members of the executive have these so please contact one of us for that. You will need to get that form witnessed by 3 members of 899 in good standing. You must turn in your completed form by 5pm on Tues April 11. Those forms can be sent to any member of the executive.
There are 4 positions on the executive that expire in April. They are Vice President Calgary, Vice President Edmonton, Secretary Calgary, Secretary Edmonton. There are monthly honorariums for these positions.
It is $150 a month for the vice presidents and $100 a month for the secretaries. All members of the executive have these nomination forms. You will need to get that form witnessed by 3 members of 899 in good standing.
You must turn in your completed form by 5pm on Tuesday April 11. Those forms can be sent to any member of the executive.
