CUPE 410 Think Tank February 4th

Hello again 410 members!

Your union is excited to provide the opportunity for you to discuss the direction of CUPE Local 410 in 2018.  Below is information regarding the Think Tank happening this Sunday – sorry about the short notice.  I understand that some people work on Sunday but you’re welcome to come and leave early if you need to.

I have created an attendance form for you to fill out if you WILL attend.  Space is limited and once the spots have filled the form will become inactive.  Please do come if you sign up.

Date: Sunday, February 4th
Time: 10am start (until 3pm at latest)
Location: Nellie McClung Branch
Please bring: Your ideas!  (and paper/pens to write them down with)

We will be discussing the direction 410 would like to take and what we’d like to accomplish this year, in addition to suggestions on how to improve the union.  In a perfect world we’d like to come out of this experience with a basic strategic plan for CUPE 410 in 2018.

If you will attend, please enter your name in the form here.  Please let me know if you have any questions!
