Letter to all Presidents from sister Iris Lloyd

Hello Membership,

Below is a letter sister Iris has sent out to all local presidents.

Hello Presidents,
Attached to this email you will find a signed MOA between Government and the NBCSDU CUPE 1253. Government has acknowledged there is a recruitment and retention crisis for Power Engineers. Therefore, they have come to the 1253 council with a Resourcing adjustment of 25% for the following classifications,

Custodial Foreperson with a Class 4 Power Engineer License. Job specs include checking maintaining boiler systems,
Power Engineer 1
Power Engineer 2
School Plant Superintendent

There will be lots of questions from our members. Please reach out to your maintenance to gather questions or comments to bring to the President’s meeting. I do not have the document in French, as we bargain in English. I do apologize.

Our Annual Presidents meeting will be held on Saturday November 18th 10am, at the Fredericton Inn. As is our tradition lunch will be provided. Please RSVP no later than Friday November 10th. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let Charline know in the RSVP. secretarytreasure@1253.ca
The Hotel as of now has no rooms left available for the night of November 17th. Please start looking for accommodations elsewhere as we have asked to be placed on a cancelation list. If you need a room and want to be placed on the cancelation list, please let Charline know ASAP. This meeting is only for Presidents. If you are unable to attend and are sending an Alternate, please let Charline know.

This is also a reminder that Charline needs the contact information for your locals Treasurer. If you haven’t already done so, please reach out to Charline with the contact details. In saying all of this, Per Capita Payments are due up until Sept 30th 2023. If your local has not paid Per Capita to 1253, I kindly ask you to do so. As of now, our Bylaws have not been sent back for approval from National from our September convention. I will let the locals know when they do.

Our Cupe 1253 Website is up and running 1253.ca. All upcoming events will be added to our website. Please check there frequently for updates. We are currently working on a new social media page that will be added to our website when up and running.

See you all on the 18th,
Iris Lloyd,
NBCSDU President
