GSU members and union members across Saskatchewan participated in last week's SFL convention and learned first-hand about the SFL's new I AM THE SFL campaign.
"This is a really important campaign to make sure our working members feel part of their federation of labour," said SFL president Lori Johb. "Sometimes people get stuck into thinking that I, as president, am the SFL, or maybe the small staff contingent at the federation is the SFL. But that's not the case. The SFL is a broad collective of our affiliated unions and the working members."
The same thought process behind the SFL campaign applies to your union.
As a GSU member, YOU are the GSU.
"GSU members run their union," said general secretary Hugh Wagner. "The union staff takes direction from elected officers and union members at their meetings and the biennial policy convention. They give us valuable insight about what is happening in their workplaces and the changes they want to see in their collective agreements."
"The direction from GSU members is considered in everything we do," Wagner said.
