Report of the Equal Opportunities (EO) Committee

December 2007

Shawn Bergeron Item 11(f)

A meeting was held with the employer on September 11/07.  Minutes of that meeting will be provided and circulated when received.  

The EO National Conference was held October 26 to 28th, 2007 in Ottawa.  The event was a huge success, due to the hard work of the National EO committee, the behind the scenes work of the National Office staff, the support of Council and the excellent participation of the members who attended.   

I wish on behalf of the committee Sister Lina Ruel all the best as she leaves UTE.  She is a true Unionist and one of the finest persons I have had the pleasure to work with.    We will miss her, oh yes, Lina was bossy, but it was because she loved what she did and so truly cared for people.

Respectfully submitted,

Shawn Bergeron
Chairperson of the Committee
