Message from the UWOSA President

Dear UWOSA members,

At our monthly meeting earlier this afternoon, I informed the Council of Stewards about upcoming changes at UCC255. I would also like to share this information with you at this time.

It is with mixed feelings that I report to you today that I am resigning as President of UWOSA.

I was recently contacted about an extraordinary career opportunity back in my home department. One that I could not disregard.

Ultimately, I was successful in the competition and I have accepted the offer.

Although the timing of my resignation isn’t ideal, our Executive and Business Manager are a highly capable, deeply committed team of individuals that will, as they always have, continue the crucial work of guarding our interests and our rights as UWOSA members.

I am forever grateful to the Officers of our Association, to Mary Hay, and to the dedicated members of Stewards Council for giving me the opportunity to represent UWOSA as Steward, Lab and Environmental Safety Committee representative, Health and Safety Officer, Vice President, and President.

I will remain an Executive in the role of Past President beginning August 17th, coincident with Meg Perinpanayagam’s appointment as President.

Sincerely,
Boun Thai

Reminder: UWOSA PDQ Survey

Dear UWOSA members,

The feedback we have received from UWOSA members regarding the status of PDQ evaluations has been overwhelmingly negative. Many of you have reported being deeply frustrated with the indifference managers have displayed over PDQ updates, as well as the lack of communication and action on the part of Human Resources after receiving your PDQ.

As an individual member, you can have a significant influence in advancing this process for all of us by simply sending the UWOSA office your signed PDQ and, discussing the importance of this action with other members.

As a reminder, please complete the survey and send us your signed PDQ. I’ve copied my email and link to the survey from my original message of earlier this month.

Thank you,

Boun Thai
President
