Hello Members

Just a few reminders for you.

First. If you would like to take vacation between May 1st and September 30th – you need to ensure your
request is into your manager prior to March 1st which means your last day to submit is midnight
Sunday February 28th. Also please try to use any outstanding 2020 vacations days by April 30, 2021.

Second. Our February bargaining talks have been cancelled – one because the budget is coming down February 25
and the other because it’s hard to book meeting spaces under these current COVID restrictions so we will be meeting the first week of April.

Third. We will be having our next general membership meeting in April – date to be determined. Kelsey Dyer Carter is no longer with CTV Edmonton and she served as our Vice President in EDM so that position is vacant. The two year terms for these executive positions expire in April: Vice President Calgary, Vice President Edmonton, Secretary (CGY)and Associate Secretary (EDM). The executive has also decided to eliminate the word ASSOCIATE in the secretary role and just have an EDM Secretary and CGY Secretary. These positions are equal making the associate title unnecessary. However, we cannot make that official until a bylaw change at a general meeting so for the purposes of the April election we will call them Secretary (CGY)and Associate Secretary (EDM) to reflect the city where those positions are currently held.

If you are interested please see a member of the executive for more information or a nomination form.

In Calgary:
Amy Stalker
Richard Benoit
Cindy Collins
Aaron Kerr

In Edmonton:
Nicole Weisberg
Karyn Mulcahy
Dan Grummett

Fourth. Penny Kittlitz has volunteered to fill the EDM vacancy on the Education Trust Fund. Thanks Penny,

Finally. Please check your work email inboxes for two important emails from Donavon. The T4’s are going out at the end of February so please make sure your address is correct on your CTV profile – they will also be available online. There is a separate email that will impact anyone who has spent 2020 working from home. It contains information outlining how to claim work from home expenses when filing your 2020 Income Tax return.

In Solidarity,
Amy Stalker
