Dear Sisters, Brothers and Friends:
Division Convention season is underway, with the Saskatchewan Division convention which took place during the first week in March. The conventions provide an opportunity for delegates to set the direction and priorities for their Division for the year ahead.
I was very pleased to see that thanks to recent constitutional amendments, the CUPE Saskatchewan Division convention allows for non-voting young worker delegates to be part of a local’s delegation to convention. As well as providing mentoring opportunities, this addition provides a welcome infusion of new ideas and energy to the convention deliberations. Congratulations to every local who brought young workers to convention.
