Equal Opportunities Committee

Report of the Equal Opportunities (EO) Committee

September 2006

Shawn Bergeron Item 11(f)

Our committee met at the end of June to start the initial planning of the national Equal Opportunities conference and to meet with the Director of CRA Employment Equity Section for an update on equity issues.  Copies of the minutes of both meetings are attached.

As most of you know, Darlene Bembridge has informed us that she would not re-offer as Local Presidents Representative on our committee.  I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Darlene for all her hard work and dedication for so many years.  We will certainly miss her professionalism, enthusiasm and cooperation.

Respectfully submitted,

Shawn Bergeron
Chairperson of the Committee
