Message from the UWOSA President

It is with mixed feelings to announce that Mary Hay has resigned as our Business Manager. Her last day in the UWOSA office will be Friday, March 18th. To say that Mary has been invaluable to the union is an understatement, and will be sorely missed. Mary is the only one I know who can recite verbatim Article 13, find the second copy of third draft notes from negotiation and know where on campus each member in our union works without checking the database.

We thank Mary for spending 14 years of her career with UWOSA. Mary has gone above and beyond for our union, and definitely above and beyond for those who have sat in Executive officer or committee chair seats, past and present.

Mary’s new employer will be getting a talented individual with keen insight, intelligence and a great sense of humor. The Union office won’t be the same without her.

President, UWOSA
