Thanks to everyone whom attended our meeting (Sept 10, 2019). Unfortunately at the start of our meeting we only had 12 members attending (including executives) which is quorum. Had we had less than 12 members we would have had to cancel the meeting. A motion was put on the floor to try to increase membership attendance to our general membership meeting and it passed. More info to follow but that passed motion will begin at the January membership meeting.
Some members might not be aware that our union donates $1000 a month to a local charity which is voted on at our meetings. Last month we donated to Lisaard house. http://lisaardandinnisfree.com . They were very appreciative of our unions gift. We are proud that our members have chosen to make such a positive contribution to our community every month.
We will be holding elections at our October GMM for Grievance chair for the LHIN and for Membership Officer.
We know summer isn’t even over, and Halloween is still on the way but we want everyone to save the date for our annual CUPE 791 Christmas / Holiday Party that is scheduled for Nov 16, 2019. We had a record turnout of 791 members and guests last year and would love to see more this year,
More info to follow shorty.
We had our best membership turnout of the year on Tuesday’s June GMM. Thank you to all who were able to attend and participated in the elections. It was a long meetings but productive and all the execs appreciate the members who continually make the effort to attend so we can have our meetings.
Below are the results of our Elections, we have a few new executives and some executives in new roles.
All the Cupe local 791 executives would like to thank Luanne Geisel for all her dedicated work to our local as our Treasurer for the last several years. Luanne has offered to train our new Treasurer Scott Gibson – he has a tough act to follow.

Congratulations to Shannon Parsons who was elected as our new Vice President (COK). We now have an opening for Grievance Chair (COK). Shannon has agreed to continue to assist with grievance duties until a new Grievance Chair is elected.
We will be taking nominations at the May GMM for Grievance Chair (COK) as well as for President, WWLHIN – Vice President, Member at Large for WWLHIN and Recording Secretary for elections taking place at the June GMM.
We are in need of at least 2 new Health and Safety Reps at City Hall. At least one will need to get certified at no cost to the member.
Inspections are done EVERY month and take 1/2 to 1 day to complete (depends on how many assisting)
Every other month there is a meeting in the afternoon that you would be required to attend.
Training will be made available and reps have the opportunity to attend union schools, and a Health and Safety Conference in the fall
If a member is interested please contact an Executive or Scott Gibson for more information. It is the Unions obligation to have Health and Safety reps available so we do hope we can get some members who would be willing to assist.
Thank you in advance,
