Sector 13 - Municipalities was formed around 1990. The Executive meet every 3 months, usually in conjunction with the All Chairs Meetings in order to discuss issues that may arise from those meetings.
At our Executive meetings we discuss a variety of issues, such as the day to day operation of the sector and developing and maintaining communications with the various locals in the Sector. The main objective of the sector is to achieve sectoral and coordinated bargaining, which means having all locals
within the Sector bargaining at the same time with a standard Collective Agreement format. We also try to arrange relevant training for the members that belong to our Sector.
