Roxanne Barnes, CERC Co-Chair OPS and MCSS MERC Co-Chair invites all OPSEU locals to take part in Community Engagement Week June 11 through June 17. OPSEU members have a long tradition of supporting community based initiatives. Ms. Barnes is encouraging members to build on this tradition and hold an event that benefits a cause in their community.
Planned events include Local 123 (Sarnia) holding a bake sale and barbecue (June 13th 5pm – 7pm) in support of Jump Start (funding youth sports) and Local 432 (Kingston) holding a week long food drive for the local food bank.
Be creative and get involved. We all know the number of people in our communities who need a helping hand is growing. Take pictures and share your event and success with your colleagues. Pictures will be posted on the OPSEU web site later in June.
