UNE Convention Deadlines Extended

Greetings,

The UNE’s National Executive met last night by teleconference and has made some decisions with respect to the UNE Triennial Convention 2020.

The following motion was moved, and seconded with the unanimous consent of the National Executive, on March 24th, 2020:

    • UNE will suspend any timelines contained in Local and UNE Bylaws regarding on time conformance, on time election of delegates, and on time resolution deadlines to the UNE Triennial Convention until May 22, 2020, and should this resolution require an extension, such extension will be made by majority vote of the National Executive of UNE.

These actions are interpreted as an extension of the existing timelines for on time locals, on time delegates and on time resolutions until Friday May 22nd, 2020.

Should a further extension be required, as stated above, it will require a 2/3 majority vote by the National Executive of UNE.

In solidarity,

Kevin King

UNE Convention and Resolutions Call-out

The 2020 UNE Triennial Convention will be held at Hotel Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in Montreal from August 24-28, 2020. Before we start paving the way forward for our union, there are a few important things you need to do.

Make sure your Local is in Conformance
You can only attend convention if your Local is in conformance. For a complete list of documents needed from your Local, see the Convention section of the UNE website.

Elect Delegates and their Alternates
Delegates and alternates are elected during general local meetings. The number of delegates per Local is determined by the number of members in good standing six months before the start of Convention as per UNE Bylaw 6, Section 11:

  1. Four to 100 members = one delegate;
  2. One delegate for each 100 members or portion thereof to a maximum of five delegates for any given local.

Observers
Locals in conformance can also send observers to convention at the Local’s expense. These members can attend convention, but they cannot participate in debate or vote. There is a $75 registration fee for observers, to cover the cost of Convention materials.

Submit Credential Forms
Credential forms for each delegate, alternate and observer must be submitted to UNE. Credential forms for delegates and alternates must include a copy of the general Local meeting minutes showing the election of those members. The credentials forms are available for download on the Convention section of the UNE website.

Registration Deadline

To be recognized as a delegate to Convention, members must complete the online registration and submit the following documents by April 24, 2020 at 4pm Eastern Standard Time:

  1. Credential forms, including meeting minutes showing election of delegates and alternates;
  2. Local financial documents in conformance with UNE Bylaws and Policies.

Members who miss the deadline will not be able to participate on convention committees and are considered late delegates. Late delegates are seated at Convention by way of procedural motion during the early stages of the opening of our Convention.

Questions about Convention Logistics and Registration?
We hope you will find all the answers on the Convention section of our website.

If you require additional information, please contact Suzanne Boucher, Convention Coordinator, at events@une-sen.org or by phone at 613-560-4359 or 1-800-663-6685.

RESOLUTIONS

Option 1

Locals should appoint a convention resolutions committee; these are normally made up of three to five members. Some Locals may prefer to appoint a committee for each resolution topic: constitution and bylaws, finance, and general resolutions. Your Local should issue a notice asking members to submit resolutions to your convention resolutions committee. Allow plenty of time for the committee to prepare a report. Members of the committee should also be encouraged to submit their own resolutions. Each committee’s report and additional resolutions should be presented during a general membership meeting. This meeting should provide ample time to debate resolutions before members cast a vote.

Option 2

Any member in good standing can submit a resolution to Convention by having it cosigned by five other members in good standing.

Submit Your Resolution Online

You should submit your resolutions electronically on our website. Completing this process significantly reduces the time required to prepare resolutions for committee review in June. If you do not have internet access, you can submit your resolutions by mail or fax.

Submit Supporting Documentation

The resolutions you submit online must also be supported by hardcopy versions of either the signed minutes verifying that the resolution was adopted during a general membership meeting or the resolutions form cosigned by five other members in good standing. You can download the resolution template on our Convention page here.

Please send these hard copies to the attention of Ateau Zola by email at resolutions@une-sen.org.

You can also submit by fax at 613-560-5208, or by mail at: Union of National Employees 900-150 Isabella St. Ottawa, ON  K1S 1V7.

Resolutions received after April 24, 2020 at 4pm Eastern Standard Time will be deemed late and will be dealt with after all other resolutions.

Questions about resolutions? Please contact Ateau Zola at resolutions@une-sen.org or by phone at 613-560-4343 or 1-800-663-6685.

Convention Wrap-Up

conv_wrapup

It’s often the busiest weeks that seem to go by the fastest; convention is no exception! Our delegates left convention feeling pumped up and energized, having accomplished a lot of work that will pave the way forward for our union.

A new budget

Having lost 4,000 members in the last three years, our union was able to considerably tighten its belt while still delivering on its commitments. Despite a shortfall in revenue of almost $2M in the last three years, we were nonetheless projecting to break even or have a slight surplus over that period.

During convention, our delegates had to make some tough choices regarding the budget. In the end, they approved a budget that took into account our loss of membership without reducing any of the services we provide.

More information about the new budget will come shortly.

A new position: National Advisor for Parks Canada

This convention, delegates considered an emergency resolution to create a National Advisor position

When the National Executive met last May, we were informed that Parks Canada was open to the possibility of having a union representative deal with national issues on a full-time basis.

While the agency would continue to pay this person’s salary and benefits, he or she would nonetheless answer to the UNE national president.

The creation of this position was approved by convention. Eddie Kennedy was later elected by acclamation to the position of National Advisor for Parks Canada.

To find out more about the new position, please consult this article.

Delegate entitlement formula stays the same

Our delegates voted to keep the existing formula that governs the allocation of convention delegates.

Term limits to stay the same

Delegates were once again presented with a resolution asking them to reconsider our term limits, which prevent national and regional elected officers from serving more than two consecutive terms in the same position. Delegates voted to keep the term limits intact.

Equipping members with the tools they need

Convention delegates also put their stamp of approval on a resolution asking the UNE to develop a tool kit for each local executive position. The kit would include fact sheets on common grievance issues, education material and printable posters, among others.

Three UNE powerhouses awarded life memberships

During convention, we took the time to recognize the important contributions of some of our most dedicated members. Garry Larouche, Heather Brooker and Steve Houston all received life memberships during convention, to rousing applauds.

You can find out more about this story by consulting the third edition of our convention newsletter.

One full day of elections

After a full day of elections, we elected five national positions, countless regional positions and our delegates to the 2015 PSAC convention in Quebec City.

You can find the results of all these elections by consulting this article.

Over $5,000 raised for the Highlands Links

Some of you may remember a 2012 campaign we launched to keep the Highlands Links, a golf course managed by Parks Canada in Cape Breton, from being privatized. Well, just two years later, the government is back at its old shenanigans.

Like most public golf courses, the Highlands Links provides affordable access a sport that is notoriously expensive.

After the National Executive allocated $3,500 from non-recurring membership services to fight back with PSAC, members stepped up to the plate to raise even more money to combat privatization.

By convention’s end, more than $5,000 was pledged to keep this golf course accessible and affordable.

An encore performance by Piano Dan

Those who attended last year’s human rights conference may remember a jaw-dropping performance by Piano Dan (…also known as Daniel Toutant, assistant national vice-president for human rights), who used his musical talents to help raise funds to end violence against our aboriginal sisters.

Toutant once again lent his talents for this great cause during convention, raising over $250 for the Native Women’s Association of Canada.

Giving back to the local community

On the last day of convention, a few members of Local 70130 decided they could do something to help the homeless and the hungry in Victoria. Safia Haji-Dayib, Darrel Klerks, Jay Lamothe and Shaun Levesque used leftover food from their hospitality suite – food that was bound to go to waste – to make extra special lunches.

“We made an assembly line and started making sandwiches,” explained Haji-Dayib. “We added a few extra things like dried fruit, cookies and something to drink. Once it was all gone, we went around downtown handing out food.”

Haji-Dayib said it wasn’t long before they were out of food.

“There are a lot of people in need. And if we could do a little to help, it was worth it.”

Exclusive: our interview with Hassan Yussuff

ex_int_e

Union of National Employees reporters caught up with Hassan Yussuff, President of the Canadian Labour Congress, after his speech at the UNE Convention for an exclusive interview. The following is an excerpt from this conversation.

Union of National Employees – There is a difference between talking about what you’re fighting against and painting a picture of what you’re going to achieve. If you were going to describe the country that you are working to rebuild, what would it look like?

Hassan Yussuff – It would be a fairer country. Working people would be valued in terms of their contribution. The things that matter to working people would be a top priority of our government: good jobs; a better health care system; better pensions so people who have spent lifetime working can retire in dignity in their retirement; a future for young people so they won’t have to live with their parents, so they can have their own place because they make enough money. These are very basic things about any society: feeling it has a purpose and that it is going in the right direction. We’re losing all that. We’re told we can’t have good healthcare anymore because we can’t afford it. We’re told we can’t have good jobs because we live in a globalized economy. We’re told we can’t have pensions because they are way too rich. These are fundamental things and we have to say that we’re all entitled to them. There is more wealth in this period in our history than there was in our foreparents’ when they were trying to create pensions in the first place. We are told that young people can’t expect a full time job or a pension, yet the wealthy seem to have done quite well. I hope my daughter will find this country is a better place than the one I came to. Respect for women’s rights and childcare should be a basic right, not something she has to fight for. Those things are not dreams they can be a reality. We have the money. We can do that. It’s just a priority of the government and a leader to say, ‘hey, do it’. If they can find billions of dollars for tax cuts [for corporations], certainly they can do this.

UNE – In your speech, you focused on the benefits that the labour movement has been able to win for our country and for all Canadians. That’s the message that is going to reach people, isn’t it?

HY – I think our role in labour has been about elevating the rights of others, not just ourselves. When we lose sight of that, we lose the public. We have to reengage the public about the good that we do. The other side has been framing us. How are we going to find a way to tell the public that, without us, you won’t get better laws; without us, things don’t improve? The things we fight for are not just for our members; they’re for our whole society.

UNE – You talk about mobilizing and organizing for the next federal election. Do you have any specific suggestions for members?

HY – We will organize political action conferences across the country to discuss a common strategy so we can get the message out about what the government action has been against workers. We want our members to recognize that they are not alone, that affiliates can work together. We have to train people about how we can carry on those conversations in the workplace, help them identify some of the challenges and issues that are going to be the ballot questions in the next election.

UNE – There has been a trend to drive a wedge between the existing workforce and new workers through differences in the benefits and pensions they qualify for under collective agreements. The rights that each can expect are different for each group. Do you feel that this is a strategy that the government is employing?

HY – Yes, this is a well-known strategy. There is a huge issue with how we build our solidarity with younger people. It is a very systematic way of undermining the credibility of the union. Union members rarely recognize that the employer created this two-tiered system. They don’t understand the context and they blame the union. A massive amount of the current workforce will be leaving in a short amount of time. [The government] wants to change the nature of the relationship with workers and they don’t have many years in which to do it. This attack on rights is saying to the new generation that you shouldn’t expect to get benefits and pensions. Clearly we have to take this on because fundamentally this is about the future of young people.

UNE – You mention the exodus that is about to happen. In our union, a lot of seasoned veterans will be retiring soon. Is CLC concerned about how some of the powerhouses of the labour movement are entering retirement?

HY – We are struggling with that right now in the Congress. It’s a concern but I am also confident to know that there are a lot of bright young people coming along. It’s not a detriment to the labour movement. I just think it provides some weaknesses because experience is invaluable as you struggle with these bigger challenges. In many cases we have people who have been around and have lived it and experienced it. But on the other hand, change is exciting. It can lead to renewal and different ways of doing things.

UNE – One of our members on Twitter was joking that you are everywhere. And it does seem like you are speaking and travelling quite a bit, even though you were only elected three months ago.

HY – I am always excited about what the next day holds for possibilities. The opportunity to speak is invaluable for our message and there is a sense that something different is happening in Congress. We have an election coming up and I feel that we need to challenge the government’s agenda. We need to confront it and we need to speak about it. We’re fighting a government that is destroying everything. My job is to inspire our membership. Right now, they don’t think they can win. I’m here to help people get out of that rut. You have to make them feel and believe that they can make a difference. There are times when I am going to have to get some rest; but I figure, after Harper is done, there will be lots of time to rest.

UNE – Thank you Mr. Yussuff.
