Unifor Local 899 Alberta Home


I just wanted to let you know the bargaining committee has a tentative contract offer to present.

The ongoing pandemic means we cannot meet in person but we plan to have a virtual meeting sometime the week of April 19. You will receive the bargaining proposals via email in advance of that meeting.

I would like to thank Stephanie Prues, Dawn Beattie, Chris Epp and Matt Burlet for volunteering their time to be a part of this committee.

As an aside, I know we have a general membership meeting scheduled for Wednesday April 14 – this meeting will be cancelled and rescheduled for a later date.

The executive will also be proposing a bylaw change at the general membership meeting. We would like to eliminate the word ASSOCIATE in the secretary role and just have a Secretary Edmonton and a Secretary Calgary. These positions are equal making the associate title unnecessary. The monthly honorarium for both positions is $100 dollars so there will be no changes to that monthly amount.

These are the current duties:

3.3 Secretary ($100 monthly honorarium)

3.3.1 The Secretary shall conduct the correspondence pertaining to the business of the Local and shall keep the official records of the Local.
3.3.2 The Secretary shall give notice of all General, Special and Executive Board meetings and all elections, as provided in these bylaws.
3.3.3 The Secretary shall record the minutes of membership meetings.
3.3.4 The Secretary shall act in the temporary absence of the Associate Secretary.

3.4 Associate Secretary ($100 monthly honorarium)

3.4.1 The Associate Secretary is elected at the location based on the results of the election of the Secretary.
3.4.2 The Associate Secretary shall record the minutes of membership meetings at his/her location and provide copies to the Secretary.
3.4.3 The Associate Secretary shall receive membership applications from his/her location and submit the applications to the Secretary.
3.4.4 The Associate Secretary shall act in the temporary absence of the Secretary.

We would like to change to read this:

3.3 Secretary Calgary ($100 monthly honorarium)

3.3.1 Shall be elected by the unionized members of CTV Calgary.
3.3.2 The mailbox is located in Calgary therefore this person will be responsible for collecting the mail.
3.3.3. Secretary Calgary keep the official records of the Local.
3.3.4 Secretary Calgary shall give notice of all General, Special and Executive Board meetings and all elections, as provided in these bylaws to the unionized employees at CTV Calgary.
3.3.5 Secretary Calgary shall keep a record of contact information for the employees of CTV Calgary.

3.3.6 Secretary Calgary shall act in the temporary absence of Secretary Edmonton.

3.4 Secretary Edmonton ($100 monthly honorarium)

3.4.1 Shall be elected by the unionized members of CTV Edmonton.
3.4.2 Secretary Edmonton shall give notice of all General, Special and Executive Board meetings and all elections, as provided in these bylaws to the unionized employees at CTV Edmonton.
3.4.3 Secretary Edmonton shall record the minutes of executive and membership meetings.
3.4.4 Secretary Edmonton shall keep a record of contact information for the employees of CTV Edmonton.
3.4.5 Secretary Edmonton shall act in the temporary absence of Secretary Calgary

If you have any questions please reach out to an executive member.

In Solidarity,
Amy Stalker
President
