Dear Local 115 Member,
We would like to bring your attention to several important dates and information.
There is a draw to attend the AFL/CLC Winter Labour School in Jasper, Alberta, from January 13-18. There is also a draw to attend the CDLC Weekend Labour School in Calgary, on November 29 and 30. The deadline for both draws is 16:00 on November 6th. As per Local bylaws, preference will be given to those members who have attended at least 3 Local meetings in the 12 months prior to the draw deadline, and further to those who have not previously attended these events.
Pending budgetary approval at our Local AGM, there will also be a draw to attend the South Central District meeting in Calgary on January 28, and the UNA Executive Board Meeting from January 7 to 10. The deadline for this draw is Dec. 4th at 16:00. These draws are equally open to all Local 115 members, no preference will be given.
If you put your name forward for any of these draws, please request your union LOAs as soon as possible. Please make a commitment to attending if you enter the draws.
The Local 115 Annual General Meeting is scheduled for December 11 from 16:00 to 19:00 in the FMC Auditorium. We will have 2 guest speakers in the first hour, and then the business portion of the meeting from 17:00 to 19:00. Local 115 members will be paid for the amount of time in attendance at the meeting, up to 3 hours. We are also planning to have BBQ sausages and finger foods and refreshments.
To help promote the Wear White Wednesday campaign, we will be holding a photo contest, inspired by Local 1 of the Peter Lougheed Centre. If a large portion of your unit is dressed in white on Wednesday, send us the photo to post on our Facebook page. The first 2 units each Wednesday to send us a photo will receive a pizza lunch for their unit the following Wednesday.
The Local 115 Executive Team
