As a permanent or a casual member of CUPE Local 7575 you have voice and vote into every decision! Matters that are financially relevant are especially important for the membership’s input and approval, as it is the members’ union dues that are being spent! It is you, the member, that directs the Executive.
With membership participation and support a union is stronger. Each month we meet to share with you what your union representatives have been doing on your behalf. Attending these meetings is a way that members can get involved. It can certainly help to answer the question “What does the union do for me?”
Did you know that we need only 15 members (of 1000) to attend a monthly meeting in order to conduct the business of the union?! Most locations have more than one Educational Assistant, so we encourage you to take turns attending the meetings to bring back the information to your colleagues, as we know that finding time outside of work can be difficult at times. We need your commitment to attend!
