Time to attend these meetings is recognized by the University and extra

Information
to the Faculties and Departments regarding these meetings has been
distributed so asking for time off to attend should not pose a problem.
Local 52 does recognize the possible operational need for some
areas to limit the number of attendees from any given area. Hence the
scheduling of these meetings during reading week. However ensure you give
as much advance notice of your intention to attend these meetings to
ensure planning is put in place for any coverage necessary during your
absence. Requesting this time does not guarantee the University will grant
this time however it should not be seen as an unreasonable request for you
to get involved and grow with the University and Local 52.

UNABLE TO ATTEND:
If for any reason you are unable to attend, you can submit your intentions
for nomination in writing (yes e-mail accepted) to your Chapter Chair (see
above). Council Representative, Council Alternate,
Convention Delegate, Convention Alternate, etc. If you have any questions
please direct them towards your Chapter Chair for further information.
Again please give some of your time, energy, and ideas to help make us a
stronger organization.

In Solidarity
See you at the AGMs
