Hotel Room Bookings

In accordance with the OPSEU/SEFPO policy (OPSEU/SEFPO Policy 10.1-5), any member who resides further than 60 kilometers from the event may request that OPSEU/SEFPO make their hotel reservation on their behalf by completing the Hotel Registration section when registering for the event in the OPSEU/SEFPO Member Portal.

OPSEU/SEFPO will be booking all hotel rooms centrally. Hotel rooms will be reimbursed, for Delegates, on a shared room basis and is the responsibility of the member to find another member to share with. If you prefer your own single room, you will be responsible for the difference of the shared and the single room rate.

Members are also responsible for payment of their hotel room upon check out as there are no charges billed back to OPSEU/SEFPO. Please save your itemized receipt and submit it with your Membership Expense Claim Form.

Only the hotel and rate(s) as listed in this call out, will be approved for reimbursement unless otherwise pre-approved. Third party booking sites are ineligible for reimbursement.

Should there be no available rooms at the OPSEU/SEFPO rate as stated in this call out, please contact the Conferences Unit at conferencesandtravel@opseu.org.

Please also notify the Conferences Unit of any special accessibility needs that you may have with respect to your hotel room.

Any additional nights outside of this policy must be pre-approved by the First Vice-President/Treasurer’s office, regardless of Region or distance from the event.

Human Rights Accommodation Request Form

Should you require a human rights accommodation or have an existing accommodation under the Human Rights Code, please complete and submit the Human Rights Accommodation Request Form in full.

OPSEU/SEFPO Child Care Policy

OPSEU/SEFPO undertakes to provide child care service, when requested, at all union educational, conventions, regional, divisional and demand-setting meetings where the membership requests at least three weeks prior to the event. Members who bring their children to OPSEU/SEFPO sponsored functions are normally required to use the on-site child care service if it is available. The three week notice will ensure adequate time to process advances when requested. If no requests for on-site child care are received three weeks prior to the activity date, child care arrangements for on-site child care may not be made. If members then bring children to the event without the required notice, the member should be responsible for making his/her own child care arrangements.
