A Message from the Chief Steward

Hello fellow 1764 Members,

I wanted to take a moment to bring a couple of things to your attention.

Firstly, if you think you may want to grieve something, you have 5 days to do so. If you are considering grieving something, please reach out to myself or another Union representative as soon as possible so we don’t miss the deadline!

In addition, if you are injured on the job and either fill out an incident report or make a WSIB claim, please let someone from the Union know. We can help you navigate the process. It is very important to document workplace accidents and incidents and reporting them is the only way to ensure that you are protected should further issues arise from the incident.

Lastly, if you are off on a medical leave or are preparing to return to work from a medical leave, please reach out to your Union. We can help you navigate the process and connect you with services that may be able to help you.

Thank You

Kristie Osmond-Jones

Chief Steward CUPE 1764
