Local 2251 Message to the Members
Your negotiating committee is presently working within the CCAA process. At this point in time, we are working towards creating an APA (Asset Purchase Agreement) to bring forward to the Court if necessary.
All of the same parties are still involved in the CCAA process. Our intent is to negotiate the best agreement possible on behalf of our members and that cannot happen quickly. Ultimately, any decision made on behalf of Local 2251 will be made by the Members.
Special General Membership meetings will be scheduled if necessary to ensure that members are as fully informed as possible as events unfold. At present, there is no need for a Special General Membership meeting.
Change of Venue for General Membership Meetings
Due to the fact that the Marconi hall has repurposed the room that our Local Union was using for General Membership meetings, we had to locate a new venue. We held one General Membership Meeting at the Tech, however, we feel that for the purpose of General Membership meetings the Legion Hall at 96 Great Northern Rd. (between Willoughby St. and Tilly Rd.) is a more suitable location. Therefore, please be advised that the normal location for General Membership meetings will be the Legion Hall until further notice. The next General Membership Meeting is July 19, 2017. Please pass this message on to your co-workers.
