Message from President Michelle Senkow
Congratulations again to all the lucky nurses that won prizes at the Nurse Tea and Local Meeting on May 8/06. Through the generosity of retailers we were able to offer these prizes to the wonderful nurses at UNA Local 115. It was a terrific afternoon with many nurses celebrating Nurses Week and participating in the Local meeting. The cake was enjoyed by all.
It is wonderful to have elected the delegates to attend the UNA- AGM in Oct 2006. Over 60 names were submitted for 40 voting delegate positions. There was great participation and involvement. Congratulations to the delegates elected and the observers that will be attending.
Another year of Negotiations is approaching. The Local 115 Delegates to attend UNA Demand Setting Meeting in Nov/06 will be elected at the next local meeting – June 14/06 @ Coombs Theatre. Call your Local office for information: 670-9960.
This summer in your UNA News Bulletin in your mail, will be a questionnaire about Negotiations proposals – fill it out and return to your Local Exec via UNA mailbox or regular mail. It is important if you have concerns or ideas for proposals that you let your Local know. Many ward reps have submitted your ideas to this date and continue to do so.
All demand setting proposals are brought forward to the Nov/06 Demand Setting meeting by the Locals. The Sept 14/06 Local Meeting will vote on the Local proposals. So get your head in gear and write those needs and ideas down – this is your opportunity.
Michelle Senkow – RN, BScN
President – UNA-Local 115
