Please note: This is a hybrid event. If you elect to attend virtually, one week prior to the event a Zoom link with instructions will be sent to you. No expenses outside of time off (if required) will be reimbursed unless otherwise pre-approved. Meals for virtual participants are not covered. To inquire about pre-approval, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As per Article 2.3 of the Negotiating procedures, the delegates and alternates and observers to both the Pre-Bargaining Conference and the Final Demand Setting Meeting (FDSM) shall be elected at a General Membership Meeting. For the purposes of this Article only, the PBC and the FDSM shall be considered to be a two-step function of one process, thereby allowing the same delegates, alternates and observers to attend both meetings.
Credential Attestation Form
The OPSEU/SEFPO Policy Manual (Section 16.1) states two (2) signatures are required on all delegate credentials. We have provided one form for you to list all attendees on. The Credential Attestation Form must be signed by two (2) Local Officers.
Please clearly identify your status, i.e. Delegate/Alternate/Observer.
Note: other required forms cannot be processed until this form is received.
All delegates are determined according to OPSEU/SEFPO’s Convention formula. Any alternate(s) and observers accompanying delegates are at the Local’s expense. Head Office will cover an alternate’s expense ONLY where the alternate attends instead of and in place of the Delegate. Please note that alternates, like delegates, must be elected.
Hotel Room Bookings
In accordance with the OPSEU/SEFPO policy (Section 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. Delegates will be reimbursed for single room hotel accommodation.
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.
Please also notify the Conferences Unit of any special accessibility needs that you may have with respect to your hotel room.
Any additional nights outside of this policy must be pre-approved by the First Vice-President/Treasurer’s office, regardless of Region or distance from the event.
Human Rights Accommodation Request Form
Should you require a human rights accommodation or have an existing accommodation under the Human Rights Code, please complete and submit the Human Rights Accommodation Request Form in full.
Family, Dependent and Attendant Care are covered expenses for this event for those who require it at the event or at home.
OPSEU/SEFPO Child Care Policy
OPSEU/SEFPO undertakes to provide child care services, 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.
Procedures for Online Submission of Forms
Members are to complete their Event Registration, Hotel Booking and Child Care Registration through OPSEU/SEFPO’s Member Portal.
Attached you will find the following documentation:
To confirm your registration, please submit all forms by email to the Conferences Unit (email@example.com) no later than Thursday August 31, 2023.
Submit all advance request forms to Advances@opseu.org
We appreciate your cooperation and participation in these meetings.
