PSUO-SSUO is 5 years old already! Come celebrate with us!

It was 5 years ago that University of Ottawa support staff voted for union certification with OSSTF/FEESO which has represented the university sector for 10 years.


How could we forget the long waiting lines during the vote held on February 20, 2007, when all the ballots were sealed. Then we had to wait again until June 29th to count the votes and have our voices heard, with a vote of 80% in favour; to at last receive our accreditation certificate from the Ontario Labour Relations Board on July 9th. And finally on October 13th, we held our first general assembly and you elected the first Executive Committee of the PSUO-SSUO.


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 Committee!
We want to celebrate this historic year by inviting you to enjoy a drink at a reception from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 23, in room 205 of the University Centre. A small gift is waiting for you. We hope to see you at the celebration!


In order that we may order the proper quantity of refreshments, please confirm your attendance at info@psuo-ssuo.ca before Friday, October 12.


*This event is possible thanks to special funding from OSSTF/FEESO.

Looking forward to seeing many of you,

Your PSUO-SSUO Executive Committee
