These PSAC regional conventions are very important events; the Union of National Employees believes it’s essential that all Locals are present to represent their members. Delegates make many decisions at these conventions – decisions that affect the direction of our union. We also elect regional executive vice-presidents, who are part of the highest level of leadership within our union.
Because of the importance of these events, the Union of National Employees fully funds our delegates to these conventions. Most PSAC regions have some form of subsidy for locals that allow them to send delegates to conventions. However, it doesn’t cover the entire cost. That’s why the Union of National Employees will top up all funding provided by the PSAC regions in order to ensure our delegates’ attendance.
What the Union of National Employees will pay for:
- Any registration fees;
- Loss of salary;
- Per diems; and
- Other reasonable costs associated with attendance as a delegate.
Child care costs are normally paid by the PSAC region.
Unfortunately, the Union of National Employees is unable to fund local observers to these conventions, but we encourage Locals to do so.
To receive funding, Union of National Employees delegates need to complete a Union of National Employees claim forms after convention. PSAC regional subsidies will be subtracted from these claims, as appropriate. Delegates who require an advance may request them. Please allow enough time to process your request.
The Union of National Employees can also help with travel arrangements through our official travel agent, who bills us directly.
