New and Improved UWOSA Website Launches on Monday June 10, 2019
Brydges Design has completed the re-design of the UWOSA website, the Stewards beta-tested, and it will be live on Monday, June 10, 2019! All information and UWOSA members will be migrated over the weekend, so please refrain from going to the website until Monday June 10, 2019.
What has improved? The Ad Hoc Communications Committee listened to you and has given each page a more modern look, the interfaces of the pages works better with mobile devices, includes a search function, and has the capability of event registration online (no more paper luncheon tickets!).
There is also a section for our Stewards and Executive Officers.
Usernames and passwords for the new site are the same as those currently in use for the existing website (i.e. you do not need a new username or password; the ones you use to access the current UWOSA website will work with the new one).
Please note if you have friends who are on a secondment outside of UWOSA, they will be migrated across, just blocked from the site until they return to their original position in UWOSA.
If you have any questions after June 10, 2019, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jen Heidenheim, Chair
Ad Hoc Communications Committee

UWOSA Floating Holidays Reminder
As per Article 21, UWOSA members are entitled to two floating holidays to be used by June 30, 2019.
Floating holidays are meant to be used for unexpected events outside of one’s control where a member would need to be absent from work in order to attend to the matter (ex. Car breaks down, water pipe in house breaks, etc.).
Keep in mind that UWOSA floating holidays may not carry forward to the next year. If you do not know if you have any floating holidays left for this collective agreement year, please ask your supervisor. Effective July 1, 2019 you will receive two float days to be used before June 30, 2020.
If you have any questions, please contact your Area Steward or the UWOSA office at email@example.com
