The semi-annual meeting of GSU's Joint Executive Council (the union's board of directors) was held in Regina on September 9. All but two of the elected representatives were able to attend the meeting.
In a full day of union business, Council members received reports on union administration and finances, as well as current events and issues affecting members of the union.
A major item on the JEC meeting agenda was a memorandum of agreement (MOA) between CPS and GSU which provides an option to resolve matters pertaining to the scope of the union bargaining unit in Saskatchewan flowing out of CPS's October 23, 2015 successorship application to the Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board (SLRB).
Council members voted to submit the MOA to the members of GSU Local 15 for approval or rejection in a vote to be conducted at the annual Sub-Local membership meetings this autumn. Arrangements are being made to distribute the MOA to Local 15 members via email in advance of the annual meetings.
