President’s Report

Local 590, Local 5117

Moved by Magner/Thomas

Whereas OPSEU Local 590 currently includes members in two separate bargaining units – at the Humber River Hospital and the Black Creek Community Health Centre (BCCHC); and

Whereas members at BCCHC have expressed a desire to form their own stand-alone local, separate from Local 590; and

Whereas the membership at BCCHC has a distinct community of interests as OPSEU members, a distinct workplace culture, a separate collective agreement, and distinct workplace issues, and can be best supported and represented as a stand-alone local; and

Whereas OPSEU, in its response to recommendations made by an external consultant’s report on issues facing Local 590 and its members at BCCHC, has indicated its commitment to support the creation of a stand-alone local for members at BCCHC; and

Whereas the membership of Local 590 have voted unanimously at their General Membership Meeting held on September 20, 2018, to approved the proposal to divide the local and create a new, single-unit local to represent members at BCCHC, and to ask the OPSEU Officers and Executive Board to take the necessary steps to ensure the new local is established as soon as possible;

Therefore be it resolved that the OPSEU Executive Committee recommend to the Executive Board that it approve the proposal to divide Local 590 and establish a new, single-unit local to represent members at the Black Creek Community Health Centre; and

Be it further resolved that OPSEU Executive Committee recommend to the Executive Board that this new local be established and chartered as OPSEU Local 5117 effective as of October 1, 2018, and the new local be supported in scheduling local elections as soon as possible, and in the establishment and effective functioning of the new local executive.
