RE: Convention 2005 Resolutions

I would like to point out that our Convention does not deal with resolutions
that are bargaining demands.

For our 2002 Convention, some locals sent in resolutions that were clearly
bargaining demands. Some examples are resolutions requesting a pay increase
or more vacation or more family related leave. These are bargaining demands
which can only be submitted when the PSAC issues a Bargaining Input Call. Any
bargaining demands received for our 2005 National will be returned to locals.

The types of resolutions that can be debated during our Convention are those
that deal with the bargaining process. Some examples are changes to PSAC Regulation
15 or UTE Regulation covering Collective Bargaining or increases in strike

Please be careful not to send in resolutions which are bargaining demands.
They will be returned to locals.

In Solidarity,


Betty Bannon

National President
