Southern Saskatchewan Geographical Rep
Prairie Region Council May 2019
It has been an active time in Southern Saskatchewan with, Phoenix pay system rallies, Lobbing and a sit in at Ralph Goodale’s office. Various committee meetings and A.G.M.S. Rally to show support to postal workers. Attended vigil for murdered and missing women. Attended Trans day of remembrance. Encouraged members to take part in international Human Rights Day. well as a where has the money gone rally against Saskatchewan government. To name a few a few.
We are currently planning pride events. This year we plan on entering the parade again this year with hopes to enter a float for the first time. This will be finalised in the next few days. So will be report more for next meeting.
I have also attended workshops and training sessions put on by the RO.
Over the past the past months I have worked closely with the regional office in Regina to figure out ways to engage members.
I have attended Area council meetings. Sitting on the executive for this committee. I have guided them on some issues and worked with them on some team building. I have also chaired for Regina Human rights committee this committee is a still in stage of re-development. But has seen much success several new members showing up for meetings.
Issues that still burn strong here in southern Saskatchewan:
The fight against crowns and casino for fair collective bargaining.
The lack of involvement at members at local and committee council meetings.
Phoenix pay system.
Goals for future:
To keep working with the RO and committees to draw in more members to attend meetings.
Continue to reach out and contact with all the locals and explain the purpose of all the committees as I have heard from several members, they do not know what the committees do. Thinking of drawing up a email explaining the purpose to send out to locals to share with members.
I will keep standing up in rallies for crowns.
To keep working with SLF, RDLC, and other unions in solidarity.
To keep all members informed on upcoming events.
To keep phoenix pay system.
Keep members engaged and encourage them to contact the MP as we enter into election year inform members of election concerns encouraging members to educated themselves on the issues.
Keep members informed on bargaining updates and encourage them to support our barraging teams.
