Report of the Health and Safety Committee

December 2021

Doug Gaetz

The next meeting of the National Heath & Safety Policy Committee (NHSPC) will be December 14, 2021. Minutes will be shared when they become available.

The committee is finalizing the preparations for the upcoming National Health & Safety Conference to be held virtually November 30, 2021 to December 3, 2021.

The deadline to apply was November 15th; however, due to the fact that we had sixteen locals who did not apply by the deadline, I discussed with the UTE National President an extension of the deadline until Nov 19, 2021. We made this rare exception to the deadline because it is being held virtually and we did not want locals to miss out on an important conference for our members.

We continue to hold weekly conversations with the CRA AD of OSH to discuss pandemic related issues.

Respectfully submitted,

Doug Gaetz
Chair of the Committee
