March General Membership Meeting

Thank you to all the members whom attended out March GMM. We held elections for the newly created role of Grievance – Membership Support Officer. This new position in centered around assisting CUPE 791 members with the challenges of WSIB claims, return to work planning, workplace accommodations, short / long term disability claims. This role was previously the unofficial duties of our Member at Large – Catherine Valente. The Executes are thrilled that she accepted the nomination and was officially acclaimed in to the position at our meeting. Congratulation to Catherine. CUPE 791 members could not have a better representative for that vital new role.
I would also personally like to thank Shannon Thomson our Vice President for Chairing our GMM Tuesday night. She did great and it’s good practice, as one day she will be the President of this Union.

In Solidarity,

Mike Eckert
President CUPE 791
