Local 442, 444, 450 merger into Local 4106

Moved by Jones/Thomas

Whereas amalgamations in health care in Kingston have resulted in hospital and service mergers; and

Whereas our members would be more efficiently served by the merger of several existing locals to better reflect the changes in administration; and

Whereas the members of Locals 442, 444, and 450 have all voted overwhelmingly in favour of merging to create one local;
