February 10, 2021 – Summary of our Membership Meeting (Virtual)

Here is a summary of our February meeting:

We announced our bursary winners for 2020-21 and they are Olivia Corke and Jenna Dandurand. Olivia is pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration with a focus on environmental sustainability. Jenna is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree with hopes to enter into the health care field. We wish them the very best in their future endeavours.

There was a motion to open up the Bursary to those taking less than three courses (part time studies), with preference given to those taking more than three courses (full time studies). Education committee will meet to discuss this further.

An election was held to send 6 delegates and one alternate to attend the CUPE BC Virtual Convention with preference given to the President and Executive members and remaining vacancies open to interested members. The election of the results are as follows:

Cindy Ozouf, Navin Jain, Melissa Schuurman, Lyn Ferec, Joanne Atherton, and Linda Fleck

The above mentioned members will be attending the convention this year

There was some discussion regarding the following topics:

  • Moving grievances to arbitration, which will be making a motion at our next meeting
  • Our local is looking at getting involved in the campaign for “Education for all.”

Members in attendance were entered into a draw for our regular $20 door price. The winners are: Laszlo Nemes and Shilpee Sharma. Congratulations!
