Dear Local 115 Member,
We are putting out a call for nominations for 6 Portfolio Rep positions, and extending an invitation for you to join us at a member appreciation dinner.
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
At the Local 115 Annual General Meeting, members voted in favour of creating 6 Portfolio Rep positions. These positions will mirror the AHS directors (Denise Brind, Barb Kathol, Caroline Hatcher, Cathy Edmond, Carol Easton, Joan Campbell). Portfolio Reps will report to the Local Executive, and be responsible for organizing and maintaining a strong Unit Rep system within the portfolio that they represent. The current budget allocation is for 7.75 hours per month for each Portfolio Rep. The individual must be employed and remain employed for the term within the portfolio for which they are seeking election. If you are interested, but are not sure what portfolio you are under, please contact the Local 115 office. The deadline for nominations is February 5th by 16:00. If no nominations are received, then nominations will be taken from the floor at the Local meeting on Feb. 12 from 16:00 to 18:00, where the election will also take place.
The Local is hosting a member appreciation dinner on February 18th. As our way of saying thank you for supporting UNA, please join us for dinner to meet fellow UNA activists and get to know more about UNA. We will be having a guest speaker from the Parkland Institute to talk about the work they do to support public services in Alberta. This is also an excellent opportunity to become more involved with UNA, as we need to stick together and support one another during some of the most massive contract regressions being sought by AHS for several decades. Appys start at 5:30, dinner at 6:00. If you would like to attend, please RSVP by responding to this email. Seating is limited, and is on a first-come, first-served basis. We hope to see you there!
If you are not able to attend the dinner, but still want to know more about UNA or become more involved, we hold monthly membership meetings the 2nd Wednesday of every month (except July and August) at 4pm in the Auditorium at FMC. You can also give us a call at 403-670-9960 or create an account on our secure UNANet server by visiting http://una.ab.ca/unanet to view members-only information and network with UNA members across the province.
