Trustees Needed

This is a call-out for both a Trustee Nominating Committee and for Trustees. The committee helps to run the trustee election by ensuring candidates fill out nomination forms, reviewing bios, and overseeing the voting process. This is (by its nature) a short term position, and an ideal way to get a first exposure to a union activity!

Nominations will soon be open (once a committee is selected) for a single, three year Trustee position. This nomination period will be open until April 13, 2017, so now is the time to seriously consider if you’d like to take a role in actively understanding how our Local operates, from the finances to the rules of our Constitution.

Please contact Kelli Howell before 3:00 pm March 3, 2017 if you are interested in being a part of the Trustee Nominating Committee.  The committee will meet the following week and will be considering electronic voting.

Response to Manitoba Hydro Staffing Reduction Announcement

February 6 update:  Links to media coverage added to Political Action Committee page.

Today Manitoba Hydro issued this press release announcing a reorganization with a staffing reduction target of 900 positions over the next year.  This is an aggressive target and is bad news for our members and ratepayers.  Our official media release response can be viewed here.
