Re: Dates for 2012 USW General Membership Meetings

I am writing to inform you in advance that the United Steelworkers Local 1998 has scheduled General Membership meetings on the following dates for 2012. In accordance with the terms of the collective agreement, employees are to be released for up to two (2) hours with no loss of straight time pay in order to attend these meetings.

1. APRIL 12 FROM 12PM TO 2PM

  • Location: Bahen Centre, 40 St. George St., Room 1200 (members at UTM and UTSC participate via video conference)
  • This meeting includes the employee’s lunch period if it would normally occur at or about this time.

2. SEPTEMBER 10 FROM 12PM to 2PM

  • Location: St. George Campus (members at UTM and UTSC participate via video conference)
  • This meeting includes the employee’s lunch period if it would normally occur at or about this time.

3. DECEMBER 12 AT 3:30pm

  • Location: Steelworkers Hall, 25 Cecil Street (no video conferencing for this meeting)

Employees are required to notify their manager, at least one week in advance of each meeting date, if they are going to attend the meeting.

Note: For the December meeting ONLY, 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 and the Institute for Aerospace Studies be permitted to leave at 2:45 p.m. in order to participate in the meeting.

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.
