Things are changing at GSU's Regina office

With recent staff retirements, a new hire, and directives from GSU's recent biennial convention, a spring cleaning shake-up has hit GSU's Regina office. If you haven't been through the 2334 McIntyre Street location recently you will notice big changes the next time you stop in. 

Effective May 1, the first floor will be entirely occupied by NORDAL LeBlanc Law Office. GSU staff and equipment will be located on the second and top floors.

Have you been to our Regina or Saskatoon offices?

Feel free to drop by, say hi, and have a look around if you are in the area.
