January GMM

MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 2020

in Sankey Chamber at 5 pm

Agenda: Members are, of course, free to add items on the agenda either by emailing the info@cupe4207.org email or directly at the GMM!

There will be a guest speaker from OSSTF district 22, Shannon Smith, President. OSSTF is a labour union representing primarily high school teachers. Together with the elementary school teachers, education workers have waged a long battle to push off changes to public education that would negatively impact students, their parents and society in general. Come to the GMM to hear about the plans of the provincial government to usher in measures to invite private for profit forms of education!

  • Bargaining Updates for UNIT 1 (Unit 2 settled, and has very recently ratified their collective agreement ).
  • Elections for the Goodman School of Business Steward position. The outstanding vacancies have been filled in previous GMM’s elections. This one remains to be filled.
  • And the vote on Notice of Motion that was given at the December GMM:

8.1.2 Election of Departmental Stewards

(c) It shall be responsibility of each elected Departmental Steward to provide their name and contact information for the Chief Steward of their Unit within three (3) calendar days.
