I’m happy to advise that revised CUPE 791 bylaws were presented and voted on by membership at the January GMM. The vote was unanimous. A lot of the changes are clerical in nature due to virtual meetings and name changes. We have added a new Executive position – Grievance / Membership Support Officer who will be there to support members with WSIB, Return to work, Work Accommodations, STD/LTD. Out of pocket amounts were also changed, some new benefits for retirees with 10 years of membership and for members having babies. The bylaws now need to be submitted to CUPE National for approval but they have been enacted in the mean time.
President CUPE 791
