The members of the Executive Committee (EC) would like to thank all of the Stewards who attended our first Stewards meeting of the year at the end of November. Two main motions were discussed and approved at the meeting. First, the amount allocated to certain line items in the Local's 2014-2015 budget have been reduced in order to reallocate those funds to cover new costs associated with increases in staff pay (i.e., the Local's Office Manager and EHP Administrator) that were not included in our annual budget when it was drafted in the spring. Second, the Bylaws Committee was asked to examine the salaries of the Local's Executive Officers and to make recommendations as to whether their salaries should be reduced in our next budget in order to lower the Local's overall staffing expenses.
The Local's annual financial audit took place on December 5th. Once it is complete, the auditor's report will be accessible to members on the Local's website.
Please note that the Local's office will be closed from December 22nd - January 2nd.
As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or if you are encountering a work-related problem that you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact us. The email addresses for all of the Local's Executive Officers can be found here.
We hope that you have an opportunity to enjoy some time to relax over the December break and we wish all of you a very happy new year!
The PSAC Local 610 Executive Committee
