I want to remind all of you that we are closing in on a vacation submission deadline.
If you would like vacation from October 1st to April 30th you need to have your request into your manager PRIOR to August 1st.
This means you need to submit by July 31st.
Just a further note – Christmas Day is Saturday Dec 25 and Boxing Day is Sunday Dec 26 so the STATS will be considered Fri Dec 24 and Mon Dec 27.
New Year’s Day is Saturday January 1, 2022 – I’m still waiting to hear back from HR about what day will be considered the STAT and will share that with you when I know.
The executive has decided to start a Facebook group in order to engage/inform/reach out to more of the membership. Please be on the lookout for your invite from a member of the executive. We will still continue to post messages here and send them to your work emails since not everyone has Facebook.
The CBA booklets are in and we will work to get one to you as soon as we can. It might take a little longer since not all of you are working in the building but we will try to get to you as fast as we can.
Finally, we are hopefully coming to the end of COVID and so the executive is working on a party in each location for either late summer or early fall.
These will look similar to what we did at Christmas time – you and your guest will each get two liquor tickets and there will be an array of appetizers for you to snack on. Please ensure you drink responsibly.
We know there maybe some nervousness about a gathering so we are working hard to find a place that has a good-sized patio so we can see each other but continue to do so safely. More details will come on those events once we have booked a venue.
