Stewards Council Meeting – September 19th

The next Stewards Council Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 19th at 10 am in the CUPE 3903 Office, just prior to the General Membership Meeting (GMM) on the same day, which begins at 12 pm.

All departmental Stewards are encouraged to attend and all general members are welcome. We will have coffee, tea and some light breakfast type snacks. We’ll be planning for the upcoming “Welcome Back BBQ” and need your support!

Highlights of our meeting include soliciting volunteers for help with flyer-ing on Friday, September 20th at York University subway in preparation for the Climate Strike as well as soliciting departmental steward involvement in the upcoming “Welcome Back BBQ” on September 25th.  Chief Stewards need your help! The “Welcome Back BBQ” is also a great opportunity to meet new members of various departments and to tell them all about the great benefits and funds they have access to as 3903 members.

A tentative agenda for the meeting is below.
