PSUO-SSUO is 10 years old already! Come celebrate with us!
It was 10 years ago that University of Ottawa support staff voted for union certification with OSSTF/FEESO. How could we forget the long waiting lines during the vote held in February 2007! Then we had to wait again until the end of June to count the votes. But patience is a virtue because with a vote of 80% in favour we officially became unionized! And finally in October, we held our first general assembly and you elected the first Executive Committee.
What a momentous year 2007 was for support staff! We took our destiny in hand and voted to be unionized and ensure that we had workplace democracy at the University of Ottawa.
Come celebrate this remarkable anniversary with your colleagues and the Executive!
We want to celebrate this historic year by inviting you to enjoy a drink and enjoy some delicious canapés at a reception on:
Tuesday, October 24th, from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m.
in the Salon of the National Arts Centre
Be sure to be there at 5:30 p.m. when we will raise a glass of bubbly to toast this special anniversary.
A few surprises and a commemorative gift are waiting for you.
We look forward to seeing many of you at the celebration!
Your PSUO-SSUO Executive Committee
