Special General Meeting and Nomination of Board Trustees

CUPE 391 has called a special general meeting for November 13th.  The Municipal election is November 15th.  We want to make sure that we have done everything we can possibly as we prepare to ELECT OUR NEW BOSSES.  Encourage everyone you know who is a CUPE 391 member, to come to this meeting.  Don’t leave the job to someone else.

We have presented our platform and have found much support. We now need to develop a compatible job classifications system that will allow comparisons to a male-dominated workforce and end the gender discrimination which has dogged library workers since Melvil Dewey first created library workers job descriptions.  It is not a sacred cow.  Do not miss this opportunity to elect people that care about strong communities that are democratically represented.

General Meeting
Thursday, November 13, 6.00 p.m.
Peter Kaye Room
Central Library

An information session was held tonight Thursday, November 6, 2008 at 6 pm for the Library Board

The deadline to submit an application is 5 pm on Friday, November 21, 2008.

Let all your civic-minded friends and colleagues know about how important it is to represent your library community.  Library workers serve the heart and mind of the community.  We take this responsibility seriously and defend our public’s absolute right to “access for all”.  We need library board trustees who support this objective and care for our diverse communities.  Follow this link for more information and bring it to the attention of those who would see the cultural collection of our communities enriched and preserved.  Library Board Trustee nominating information
