Dear Sister / Brother,
I am writing on behalf of the OPSEU Child Treatment Executive to advise you that the annual Sector dues for the year 2014 are now being requested.
Sector dues assist us in promoting the Sector and the important work we do. They are used to cover costs not covered in our Sector budget such as administration costs (eg: mailings, USB keys for our bargaining conference) and purchase items to support the work of the Sector (eg: Kids Matter Lanyards, t-shirts etc.) to promote solidarity within the Sector.
In the past, on behalf of the Sector, we have been able to contribute to Locals" strike funds (most recently, Local 666 in December 2011). We believe this has assisted in promoting in a tangible way, solidarity among the sector membership.
The dues, as per Sector Bylaws are calculated as follows:
$1.00 per part time member and $2.00 per full time member in your bargaining unit. (Note: by bargaining unit not Local, for those in a composite Local)
Please be aware that our records continue to need updating, If there have been changes in your LEC, and this letter has been incorrectly addressed to you, I apologize and would appreciate it if you could forward it to the appropriate person in your Local so that it can be promptly attended to.
When you forward your cheque could you ensure that you are clear as to whom the receipt can be returned to in order to assist with your book keeping.
Cheques are to be made out to OPSEU CHILD TREATMENT SECTOR and can be mailed to:
