WE’RE MOVING!

The CUPE 7575 Office moves this week on April 10th.

As we get the boxes packed and our furniture prepared for the move on Wednesday, we ask for your patience during this busy time.  The office phones will not be available between the morning of April 10th until sometime on the 11th.  We are doing our best to make this transition go as smoothly as possible.  The office lines will remain the same once we get everything transferred over.

In the meantime you can reach the executive at the following cell numbers:

President, Monique Greczula 519-614-0750
Vice President, Kristine Hamilton 519-615-0079
Chief Steward, Jennifer Eckert 519-615-3753
Karen Westlake (ESRTW) 519-614-3753  

Please leave us a message with your name and number to contact you, in the event we don’t get to your call right away.  You can also text us a message.

We will make every effort to support you during the move.  Thank you so much!

Our new address is:

1093 Brydges St. London, ON N5W 2B5

WHY YOUR ATTENDANCE AT MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS IS IMPORTANT!

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!

WELCOME!

Welcome to all members and we hope that you will come back regularly!

THIS IS YOUR LOCAL – THIS IS YOUR UNION …. TOGETHER, AS A TEAM –  WE CAN DO THIS!!
