Hotel Room Bookings

In accordance with the OPSEU/SEFPO Policy Manual (Section 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. Delegates will be reimbursed for single room hotel accommodation.

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.

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 childcare service, when requested, at all union educationals, 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 should normally be required to use the on-site childcare service if it is available. The three-week notice will ensure adequate time to process advances when requested. If no requests for on-site childcare are received three weeks prior to the activity date, childcare arrangements for on-site childcare 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 childcare arrangements.

Delegate Entitlement

Each unit shall select one member from the current or most recent bargaining team to attend the conference. We encourage you to select an alternate as well, in the event that your delegate cannot attend or there is additional space available to send an alternate.

The OPSEU/SEFPO Policy Manual (Section 16.1) states two (2) signatures are required on all delegate credentials. We have provided one form for you to list all attendees on. The Credential Attestation Form must be signed by two (2) Local Officers.
