Bargaining Bulletin #2
Sign your union membership application form today!
You are an OPSEU member, but you still need to sign a membership application form to get your union card. This card will include your union membership number.
The OPSEU membership card provides you with the right to have a say in how your local union is run, to attend membership meetings and events, to vote on your local budget and leadership, to run for positions within OPSEU and the labour movement, and to access OPSEU discounts. Download the application form now by visiting http://bit.ly/OPSEUmembershipform.
You can also get a membership application form from a member of your Local Executive Committee such as your Local President or a union steward.
Sign your card today and support part-time workers’ rights! We are the change.
