Re:
USW General Membership Meeting

The United Steelworkers Local 1998 has scheduled a General Membership meeting for December 14th, 2006 at 3:30 p.m. in the The Steelworkers Hall, 25 Cecil Street, 3rd Floor.

In accordance with the terms of the staff-appointed collective agreement between the United Steelworkers and the University of Toronto, “employees will be given time off (not to exceed two (2) hours), with no loss of regular straight time pay, up to three (3) times per year to attend general membership meetings of the Local Union” (see letter of intent, page 58).

We ask that those staff-appointed employees wishing to participate in the meeting who are represented by USW on the St. George Campus be permitted to leave at 3:15 p.m. and those employees at the University of Toronto at Scarborough and Mississauga, the Institute for Aerospace Studies and the David Dunlap Observatory be permitted to leave at 2:30 p.m. in order to participate in the meeting.

The meeting will be also teleconferenced to members at UTM, in Room SE2068B at Erindale campus and to members at UTSC in Rm B-B505 at Scarborough campus.

There is no comparable clause in the non-appointed (casual) collective agreement. However, such employees may attend on their own time if they are not scheduled to work.
