Regional Hardship Committee Training

Hands clasped in solidarity
Wednesday, December 7, 2022
9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Virtual (Zoom)

The Member Education Unit is pleased to announce a Hardship Committee Training Part 2 for elected members and alternates.

Recognizing that OPSEU/SEFPO is a member-led social democratic union and has regional leadership who are in direct contact with the members and understand that some are facing financial hardship, the Executive Board has established a Hardship Fund to provide financial assistance for members in good standing who find themselves in dire circumstances.

The Regional Hardship Committees are responsible for administering the disbursement of the funds based on member eligibility. In order to effectively carry out their role on the committee, all Regional Hardship Committee members and alternates are asked to attend an in-house training session. Please note that if you did not attend Part 1 of the Regional Hardship Committee training, you are still invited to attend Part 2.

Date and Time:
Wednesday, December 7, 2022
9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Virtual, via Zoom
A Zoom link will be sent to all the attendees in advance of the training.
