Rescheduled Date for USW General Membership Meeting – September 20, 2022

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the United Steelworkers (USW) Local 1998 General Membership Meeting, previously scheduled for Wednesday, June 15, 2022, will now be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. USW members need to be given release time to attend this meeting. 

In accordance with the ‘Letter of Understanding: Union Meetings’ in the USW Staff-Appointed Collective Agreement, “employees will be given time off (not to exceed two (2) hours), with no loss of regular straight time pay, up to three (3) times per year to attend General Membership Meetings of the Local Union.” Employees are required to notify their manager at least one week in advance of the meeting date if they are attending the meeting. 

There is no comparable clause in the USW Casual collective agreement. However, casual employees may attend on their own time, if they are not scheduled or required to work.
