NVP BC/YT Spring Report to 2018 BC/YT Presidents Conference in Vancouver, BC, April 14-15, 2018

Some of you must have cheerfully felt that the plane ride had given me enough time to adjust to becoming NVP and composed emails to me while in the air. :-) I took your lead and the phone calls began that night.
I spent two days working out of our RUO office on West Pender. Meeting with our staff to talk about the President's Conference and Convention, settling into the NVP office, and consulting about some common goals as we move forward.

Management meetings are starting soon. In the meantime I'm organizing site visits in Vancouver, Victoria and Nanaimo. I also had an opportunity to organize a rally for the PSAC a few days after returning - just a gentle reminder to the employer that our members will not be rolling over on sick leave.Read more
