General Membership Meeting

OPSEU Local 241 is hosting an online General Membership Meeting for all members on Wednesday, April 7 at 5:30 pm.

RSVP online here

GMMs are where members take the important action of discussing and voting on the matters that affect our local, and are held a minimum of 2 times per year.

We will be voting on bylaw amendments and will discuss updates on current local activities and the part-time collective bargaining process.  There will be a question and answer period, and you will be able to chat with your local team.

Attendance is critical! Part-time employees are very strongly encouraged to attend. We must always have a specific number of members in attendance so that we can vote on bylaw amendments.

We look forward to seeing you on April 7!
