USW General Membership Meeting: June 12, 2024

Dear colleagues,

The United Steelworkers Local 1998 will be holding a General Membership Meeting on:

  • June 12, 2024, 3:30 to 5 pm

USW members need to be given release time to attend these meetings.

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 for those under the USW Casual collective agreement. However, casual workers may participate during their own time, assuming they are not scheduled or required to work.
