Amendments were made to the following articles, enhancing clarity and effectiveness:

We also discussed Article 11, Appointments and Transfers, as well as Article 12, Hours of Work. Our focus is on how additional shifts are being offered and will present proposals for clarity and respecting seniority at our next meeting. 

Wear red on July 17 and 18

Our next bargaining meetings are July 17 and 18. Wear red on these days to show your support! We appreciate your solidarity and the strong message it sends the employer. 
Take wear-red selfies with your coworkers and send them to to be shared on AUPE’s social media.
