Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It is a pleasure to be your president and a position that I do not take lightly.  Your executive works hard for members and with our employer to improve the working conditions for all involved. We will continue to work with the Board through Labour Management Meetings and Board Liaison Meetings to ensure that our voices are heard.

Our schools are so lucky to have the dedicated individuals working the front lines for education. The daily routines that are carried out by all the support staff goes above and beyond what is expected, and without these core jobs in place, our schools would not run as effective as they do.

As 2016 comes to an end I want to wish all of CUPE Local 1099 members and families a Merry Christmas.  I hope that you enjoy the holidays with your families and friends.  I wish you all the very best in 2017.
