A Message from our UWOSA President

Dear Fellow UWOSA Members,

I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you of the upcoming UWOSA Annual General Meeting being held on Tuesday, April 25th at 12:00 pm in the Arts and Humanities Building (AHB), Room 1R40.

This is an important meeting as we will be discussing and voting to approve the 2017-2018 operating budget. As you should be aware from the agenda sent out on April 12th, under a recommendation from UWOSA’s Finance Committee, a motion will be made to raise our dues by 0.45% which would increase our current dues set in 1997 at 1.25% to 1.70%.

In addition, your UWOSA Negotiating Team is preparing to enter into collective bargaining with the university to negotiate a new collective agreement. Information and updates on the bargaining process will be provided at this meeting.

We will also be providing information on the current state of our job evaluations and the new Job Evaluation System as well as the status of our formal complaint with the Pay Equity Commission against the University.

I urge every member to attend this important meeting. Please remember, as per Article 7.07 in the Collective Agreement, all UWOSA members are entitled to two hours without loss of pay to attend the Annual General Meeting (this includes our regularly scheduled meal period). For those members that work off main campus, you are entitled to an additional hour to allow for travel time.

Please notify your supervisors as soon as possible of you intent to attend the meeting and please email us at if you are prevented from attending.

Thank you.

John Critchley
UWOSA President
