The State of the Union

OPSEU’s “virtual” Convention video

On April 6, OPSEU’s Executive Board made the difficult decision to postpone Convention 2020.

While Convention is the union’s highest decision-making body, the dangers of COVID-19 remain too great for face-to-face meetings.

As part of an effort to fulfil obligations to provide open and transparent reporting of OPSEU business, President Warren (Smokey) Thomas and First Vice-President/Treasurer Eduardo (Eddy) Almeida are providing a state of the union address remotely from their offices.  They will talk about how we’ll overcome the challenges in the year ahead.

Agenda for this video presentation:

  • National Anthem: 0:52
  • We are OPSEU: 2:17
  • OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas: 4:09
  • OPSEU COVID in Action: 20:22
  • OPSEU First Vice-President Eduardo (Eddy) Almeida: 22:20
  • History of OPSEU: 35:23
