3. December 11 at 3:30 p.m.

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.
