SE Manitoba Geographical Rep
Prairie Region Council September 2014
Greetings Sisters and Brothers,
This reporting is for the period of July to September 2014.
It has been an honour and a privilege to be re-elected to this position at the last Prairie Triennial Convention. I am looking forward to work with each and every local in this geographical area.
Following Convention, I started on setting- up a communication network to ensure receiving information from locals in SE Manitoba. I also wanted to make sure that information is being disseminated to these locals and to promote activism in the broader labour movement.
I also have been sharing information on relevant community and social justice organizations that share common interests with our members.
The one great thing I participated in is the march that was put on by the Winnipeg Labour Council on Monday, September 1st. The march started at Memorial Park at 1:00 pm, marching to Portage Avenue, then West to Vimy Ridge Park, where the Labour Day Picnic took place from 2:00 PM until 4:30 PM.
I am also looking forward to attend the special presentation, put on by the Winnipeg Women Regional Committee, on “Political” with presented by Sister Kelly Moist, President of CUPE Manitoba. This event is going to be include brothers in the Winnipeg area as well.
I will also be actively attending meetings put forth by both the Winnipeg & Area Human Rights Committee and the Winnipeg Area Council.
I wish all PRC members a productive and fun-filled 3 year term, especially the newly elected members with my warmest welcome.
