Dear Members,

Anniversaries and celebrations are all around us in 2016.

We all know that the NRC is celebrating its 100th anniversary.  As well, RCEA and PIPSC are both celebrating 50 years as your certified bargaining agents. Congratulations to all.

AGM preparations have begun.  The meeting will be at 5:00 pm, Tuesday October 18, 2016.  Members may participate in person, on teleconference or via video link.  All the details and information will be sent out to members in early October.

Bargaining has not yet begun for any of the groups.  We are seeking volunteers for AD, AS, CS, OP and PG bargaining teams.  If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Joan Van Den Bergh, joan@rcea.ca or call the RCEA office.

Participation in your union may also be through stewardship.  If you are interested or would like more information, please contact me, cathie@rcea.ca or call the RCEA office.

I wish you all a very happy and safe summer.

Sincerely,

Cathie
