To All Members Inside and Outside Bargaining Units:
A number of you have expressed your concern and frustration with the delay in receiving your pay owing from the 2016 round of Collective Bargaining. And you have had every right to be upset.
Finally with the support of the Membership, I am pleased to report that I have confirmed that all retroactive pay owing from the recent round of Collective Bargaining will be on your next pay.
For those who are normally paid this week, you will receive your retro pay this Friday October 28th.
If your regular pay day is next week you will be getting you retro pay next Friday November 4th.
This process has taken much longer than it ever should have, but you will have your retro a full two weeks before the date originally estimated by the employer.
CUPE Local 4705
To all CUPE 4705 Members and Allies,
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the untimely passing of Brother Steve Speck after a courageous battle with cancer.
Steve leaves behind his wife Lynn, sons Adam (Monique), Ryan (Melanie), Steven (Jodi), daughter Stephanie Aubut (partner Luc) and numerous grandchildren (Hunter, Liam, Zoe, Owen, and Rosalie).
Steve was well-known and respected by all for his sense of humour and his devotion and love for his family.
Brother Speck was also very active within the Union as a long-time Union Steward, and serving terms as Chief Steward, Sectional Chair and Co-Chair and also served as Local President from 2008 to 2010. Steve worked tirelessly on behalf of the Membership and his passing is a loss to all of us.
He will be missed by his many friends and co-workers at Environmental Services and Transit, and throughout the City of Greater Sudbury.
At the request of the Steve’s family there will be no service or visitation.
Donations to the Maison Vale Hospice in Steve’s memory will be appreciated by the Speck family.
Attention all members. Please ensure your contact information is up to date with your employers. With Local elections approaching this fall, it's very important for the Union to receive up to date mailing information when it's requested for you to receive your voting package in a prompt fashion.
