Solidarity with CUPE Local 108

A message from Todd MacPherson, National Representative, regarding Local 108:

As you may be aware, CUPE Local 108, Halifax Civic Workers are in tough negotiations with HRM. The employer will not come back to the bargaining table after the members overwhelmingly rejected the employer’s final offer. The local is having a rally on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at City Hall at 5pm to send a clear message to the mayor and council.

We need a new treasurer!

Here’s an opportunity to volunteer and serve your union! We are looking for a new Treasurer for CUPE 3912. The Treasurer takes care of financial matters including:

• bookkeeping using CUPE’s electronic ledger,
• depositing rebates,
• making payments,
• serving as liaison with the local’s and employers’ payroll services,
• participating in the investments committee and Executive meetings,
• corresponding with CUPE National in financial matters and
• ensuring that the local’s trustees finish the yearly audit.

As a member of the executive, the Treasurer receives an honorarium.

Please note this is an elected position of the CUPE 3912 executive. We will be in touch with interested members after we set a date for the election.

Please contact if you are interested or for more information.

CUPE 3912 extends its thoughts and prayers to the families and friends of those who were killed in the terrible and abhorrent attack in Orlando, Florida. CUPE 3912 supports the LGBTQ+ communities at Dalhousie, St. Mary’s and Mount St. Vincent. CUPE 3912 is committed to eradicating homophobia and transphobia. Hate has no place in our communities.

Dear CUPE members,

Many of you have met, or spoken with our office manager of many years, Renee Dankner.

It is with sadness that we report that Renee is bereaved of her beloved husband of 54 years, and we join her in mourning Gordon’s passing.

Renee, her children, grandchildren, other family and friends are in our thoughts, with affection and respect.

Your 3912 Executive Committee
