- general secretary Hugh Wagner will be meeting with Local 8 officers at a bargaining preparation meeting on Wednesday.
Here are somethings on our Fall calendar
GSU members who sign up and are approved to participate in GSU-sanctioned events will have their time off work, wages, and expenses covered in accordance with GSU's expense policies (child care included). GSU staff will also assist you with arranging the time off with your employer.
Submit your expression of interest to your staff rep or directly to GSU by email at email@example.com if you are interested in attending either of these events.
It's that time of year when GSU holds the annual meetings of the Locals and Sub-Locals. Between the beginning of October and the middle of December more than 40 annual meetings of union members will be held throughout Saskatchewan to discuss Local issues, hold elections, vote on the Defense Fund and review the General Secretary's 2018 Report.
Copies of the report will be distributed at meetings or you can view and download a copy on our website here General Secretary's 2018 Report.
Watch your inbox for the meeting notice covering your GSU Local or Sub-Local.
