Local 415 Supporting Students during Exams on Wed., Dec. 12 – Donations welcome

Hello all,

On Wednesday, Dec. 12 from 10-2 in the J-link, Local 415 will again support students during the exam period by providing snacks. The Local has purchased some snacks, but invites members interested in supporting this initiative to drop your donations in C215b Tuesday between 8am – 4pm or Wednesday between 8am – 10am.

This is the second time Local 415 is hosting a snack table in the J-link for students to grab a snack between exams. We will happily accept pre-packaged items such as washed fruits, breakfast bars, cheese snacks, etc.

 

Thank you for your support!–

2nd VP by-election

Sisters and Brothers,

I wanted to let everyone know that I have been unable to confirm a successful candidate for the position of 2nd Vice President of your by-election held on December 5th. After a very close result there were some irregularities due to inaccurate membership lists provided by the College. The college has an obligation to provide the local with a verified list which occurred in time for the election, however we found inaccuracies late in the day before the voting closed and that has resulted in an inability to confirm a successful candidate. The issue is that some partial load staff appeared as sessional and some sessional staff appeared as partial load.

I have no choice but to render this election void and to re-run an election in February. I will work with the local to create a new system of verification to ensure the College’s verified list is in fact accurate. I will notify everyone of that new process before the next election.

Thank you to everyone for participating.

Have a happy holiday season and I will see you in 2019.

in Solidarity,

Nelson Ross Laguna
