- Call for nominations for the position of Unifor Local 2025 Vice-President - Regions

Local 2025 Vice-President for the regions Sherrill Robinson-Wilson has stepped down from her position. Our thanks to Sherrill for her contribution to the Unifor executive and particularly to our members in the regions.

For the months of January, February and March, Adrian Dumitru will be Acting Chief Steward, replacing Tiffani Tyner.

If you need representation, please contact Adrian who will assign a steward to assist you. If you wish to volunteer to become a steward, please let Adrian know. We need more!

I remind members that Adrian, our stewards and the members of the Local executive have full-time jobs with PSAC or USJE. If you need to meet with any of us, please arrange a suitable time to meet, unless the matter is one of a very urgent nature such as notice of a disciplinary meeting.

In solidarity,

Louise Laporte, President

The members of your bargaining team are:  Victoria Gibb-Carlsley, Amy Kishek, Louise Laporte, Holmann Richard

There are several opportunities for you to provide your input in the next few weeks.

Input form:  attached is a form for you to use to submit your proposal(s). Please read it carefully. We need your reasons for proposing the change(s).

One year later, women are marching

 
On January 20, 2018, millions will march again in cities around the world and Unifor is encouraging every member to participate.

Recent events have shown that now is an important moment to come together to push for social justice for the most marginalized and oppressed among us.

The Women’s March is an important tactic for unifying our communities in order to create change. Now is the time to show resistance and solidarity. We must not rest until women have equity, justice and parity at all levels of leadership in society.

Bargaining Team

December 15

Bargaining continued on Friday. Progress continues but a number of key issues for our members remain unresolved. The employer still has concessions on the table.

During the month of January, we will be producing bulletins on these key issues and concessions. We will also be working with our mobilization committee to develop new activities in support of our demands leading up to the next round of bargaining.

We will be back in negotiations from February 13 to 16, 2018.

December 14

We had another productive day of bargaining. Negotiations are progressing. We will be meeting with the employer again  tomorrow.
