OPSSU works in solidarity with OPSEU members at Convention 2016

To all OPSSU members,

I want to recognize the hard work of all OPSSU members as we begin Convention 2016. It is thanks to the hard work of staff that the massive annual Convention event can take place.

This year at Convention staff will be wearing OPSSU buttons that read “Respect”. That is what it is all about: Staff deserve respect for our hard work and our commitment to excellence in serving OPSEU members.

We are also especially indebted to our retirees this year. I want to thank in advance everyone who is coming to support our bargaining by handing out flyers and buttons to OPSEU members that say “We support our staff”. We are giving a strong message that OPSSU is proud to work in solidarity with OPSEU members. Continue reading OPSSU works in solidarity with OPSEU members at Convention 2016
