Workforce Adjustment Committee

Report of the Workforce Adjustment Committee

December 2008

Nick Stein Item 11(h)

The Committee has not met since the last Executive Council meeting.

As stated at the September Council meeting the Committee Chair still has not received responses from all regions in regards to members in affected status and will report once all regions have responded. The Committee is especially interested in those members who have been in affected status for over one (1) year.

The Chair is attempting to set up a meeting of the Joint National WFA Committee and it appears this meeting will not take place until 2009. When a date is confirmed the Chair will contact Council for any agenda items.

The employer has sent the Committee a new document dealing with WFA and at this point it is a draft and we are preparing our suggestions for this. However, we feel this would best be discussed at the next meeting of the Joint National Committee.

The Chair would like to welcome Sister Pamela Abbott as the new co-chair and Sister Sylvie Lahaie as the new TC representative. As well, the Chair would like to THANK both Brother Marcel Bertrand and Brother John Kosiba for their many years of work on this Committee. 

Respectfully submitted,

Nick Stein
Chair of the Committee
