Whereas the OPSEU/SEFPO executive board approved a hybrid model for the 2022 convention; and

Whereas anticipating the direction the pandemic will take, and the subsequent possibility of further lockdowns by the federal or provincial governments or a local medical officer of health, would be extremely difficult; and

Whereas the OPSEU/SEFPO convention 2022 would be challenged to take place if the regional meetings were not held; and

Whereas the planning for regional meetings and convention should be consistent;

Therefore be it resolved that the budget line on page 59 related to regional meetings be increased by 25% ($150,000.00).
