As this is my first report it is brief as I have had limited responses from local’s in my area.
CIU Local 30036 AGM was held where I was able to tell the group I had been elected to the PRC.
June 20, 2017 Port of Coutts had a “cake” for the anniversary of our group being without a contract since June of 2014.
UNDE Local 30910 CFB Suffield reports that for National Public Service week they had been asked to boycott a BBQ they collectively decided this would not work for their local as they have decent management and they don't have anything to do with the politics out in Ottawa.
They felt if management reported that ALL 400 members boycotted, Ottawa would even blink an eye at that. Instead, at the BBQ, they did a letter-to-the-MP/PM writing campaign. Their Base Commander even sanctioned it and encouraged people to sign the letters (they had form letters prepared for people to sign).
In all, they had 57 letters to their MP (a Conservative - Glen Motz) and 58 letters to Mr. Trudeau. The Local felt the letters will have more of an impact than BBQ boycotting.
