Campus Chairs Update March 2015

Brothers and Sisters,

Fiscal Restraint
The ongoing fiscal restraint may be a problem. If you are taking on additional duties due to the hiring issues that Sask Polytech is currently experiencing please notify your campus chairperson. For a copy of the letter sent to Deborah Meyers, VP Administrative Services questioning this initiative see http://ps.sgeu.org/Documents/FiscalRestraintsCriteria.pdf. The reply letter from Deborah Meyers is at http://ps.sgeu.org/Documents/fiscalrestraintletterreply.pdf.

Shop Steward Union Observer Training and LTD Presentations
On March 25 in Saskatoon (for Saskatoon and Prince Albert) and March 26 in Regina (for Regina and Moose Jaw) SGEU will be providing a one-day training session for shop stewards on Union Observer Training and a presentation on LTD benefits and how they work. We look forward to this training and maintaining consistency between campuses for interviews.

Flex Spending
Please ensure that you state your preference on your Flex Spending options. The deadline is April 30. If you don’t choose one of the options you will automatically receive the cash payout.

In solidarity,
Shawna North
