Educational Weekend


Region 3 Educational Report, October 17 – 19/08

October 17 – 19/08

Hello brothers and sisters,

Once again another fabulous educational weekend at the Bayview Wildwood Resort. Approx 110 members enjoyed fantastic weather, great speakers on Friday night, and even more fantastic entertainment Saturday night, while diligently learning everything OPSEU staff had to teach them during the day.

Thanks again to brother Peter Wright for organizing a golf game on Friday afternoon. It was lots of fun for those who were able to participate.

On Friday night region 3 members learned more about the Killer Coke campaign and TILMA from Yhony Munoz (H.O. Campaigns) and Larry Brown, NUPGE.

On Saturday the courses got started. Staff from region 3 as well as member co-facilitators educated the participants on Stewardship, Health and Safety , the Employment Standards Act and holding effective ERC’s.

A huge thanks to the region 3 staff and Terri Aversa (H&S) as well as our member co-facilitators, Ann Ledwidge, Sean Wilson, Silvanna Petersen, and Pete Wright.

Your EBM’s and staff will be holding a meeting in the near future to discuss next years curriculum, so stay tuned!

In solidarity,

The Region 3 Executive Board.
