Dear Members,

This is to advise you that the Sector 17 – Leadership Day has been scheduled.

Date: Tuesday, March 28, 2023 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Don’t miss out on the upcoming Leadership Day. The OPSEU/SEFPO Executive Board approved space for two delegates per bargaining unit. The Divisional Executive encourages all highest ranking to attend with another LEC member or steward from your local/unit.

We will provide updates on the latest changes to Public Health, Ontario Health teams, and discuss health and safety issues. Jane McAlevey is this year’s guest speaker, she has spent most of her life as an organizer and negotiator. She has led power structure analyses and strategic planning trainings for a wide range of union and community organizations around the world.

The focus of the day is to have a leadership conversation about advancing a new vision for community health care, and to hold the government accountable.

We look forward to discussing strategies we can take back to our locals/units to motivate and encourage members to participate and take action in the workplace.

THIS MEETING WILL BE HYBRID

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.

OPSEU/SEFPO Child Care Policy

OPSEU/SEFPO undertakes to provide child care 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 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.
