Message from UWOSA President

Fellow UWOSA Members,

In the next couple of days you may receive past newsletter issues regarding the ratification information session, the job evaluation information sessions (that just happened) and other more recent announcements. On behalf of the ad hoc Communications Committee, we apologize for this slight inconvenience.

The bright side to a few extra and perhaps outdated emails is that you will continue to receive emails from UWOSA all at once (instead of in batches, as before), and I thank the ad hoc Communications Committee for their diligence and tenacity to fix this error.

Rather than send out additional and separate emails to you, I invite all of you to visit the website regarding the following announcements:

1. Silent Auction Items: - Please scroll down to read on main page. The deadline has been extended to November 17th instead of the November 10th (as you will see in the newsletter issue).

2. Newsletter: If you have not already done so, please sign into the Member Area, Newsletters, to read the most recent newsletter.

3. Temporary Back-Fill of Vice President: - Please scroll down to read on main page

4. December General Meeting: Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, December 6, 2017 from Noon to 2:00 p.m. in the McKellar Room (2nd floor UCC). More detailed information and an agenda will be posted in accordance with our Constitution and Bylaws.

The new collective agreement will be signed by both UWOSA and the Employer in the next week or so; however, if you have questions regarding the job evaluation, PDQ, or appeals process, please contact us at

As always thank you for your patience and support to our union!

In Solidarity,

Meg Perinpanayagam
