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

Here is the summary of our Mar 10 meeting:

Lois introduced Joy Demsey who is our interim Campus Wellness Advisor covering Sam Nielsen’s maternity leave. Welcome to Joy! We look forward to working with you.

Melissa provided a quick updated from LOA R committee and what they have been up to in the past year. If you are interested to know more, please feel free to contact Melissa Schuurman.

Karl Fultz is retiring soon and has requested a lifetime CUPE 4879 membership. If the membership approves this request, we will send it to CUPE National for final approval.

The following topics were discussed:

  • Discussion about a survey being sent out to get feedback from our members regarding the return to campus plan. The executive has met with the employer and we have asked to keep us to date with the progress.
  • The executive is currently looking at a “Letter of Understanding” for working from home for a department that is partaking in a pilot project post pandemic.

We encourage members to reach out directly to the executive to ensure that your concerns are addressed.

The executive is planning an outdoor event once the restrictions lift. We will keep everyone posted.

Members in attendance were entered into a draw for our regular $20 door prize. The winners are: Margaret West and Michael Dillon. Congratulations!

See you at the next meeting.
