Jan 08,2022: January RMM

This month’s Regular Membership Meeting did not achieve quorum, once again.

The Local is basically stuck in neutral on many items that require Membership approval by quorum vote. We also remain 2 Executive Officers short as we cannot hold elections without quorum. It is also not possible to even set up a Social Committee without the vote & participation of willing Members.

It is critical that this situation resolves itself by the February 12th RMM

Mar 30,2021: Executive Meetings moving forward

As L520’s Executive now includes 3 Members who generally work evening shift, the Executive Committee has opted to move away from our traditional Tuesday evening Monthly Executive Meeting, moving it instead to the time immediately prior to any Regular Membership Meeting, beginning in May 2021.

This move will save the Local almost $2500 per year in costs associated with reimbursing the employer for time taken as Union Business (known as “Booking-Off time”). The evening shift Executives also expressed concern with issues revolving around their reduced shift time when attending the Executive Meetings.

This voluntary move by the Executive Committee will solve both issues.

Dec 12,2020: December RMM CANCELLED

Unfortunately, we had to cancel our December Regular Membership Meeting at the last moment due to a scheduling conflict on usage of the Hall.

Our apologies to all who showed up but we were unaware CUPE 38 was using the Hall to distribute their children’s Christmas gifts…the Hall was literally filled with presents.

For the basics as to our “goings on” over the past month, go to the Members section to view the latest President’s Report & the Latest News section for all the latest updates & happenings.

 

Dec 07,2020: Important reminders for this week

Thank you to everyone who made it out to the Children’s Christmas Gift distribution this past Saturday, both Members & Executive elves alike. It was great to see everyone, albeit briefly.

Gifts not picked up have been donated to the Society of St Vincent De Paul for inclusion in their Christmas Hamper Program.

Our monthly Executive Meeting will be this Tuesday.

Our monthly Regular Membership Meeting happens on Saturday.
