Important News: BC Municipal Election Survey
Attention CUPE 403 Members.
The Vancouver Sun is surveying candidates running for municipal office within the Lower Mainland. Here is the link to the site.
We recommend that members take the time to read what the candidates in their municipality have to say regarding important issues that affect the workplace and the community at large.
The questions range from:
What do you think are the top three issues facing your community?
...to whether a candidate thinks contracting out more municipal services will save money.
Councillour Fox and candidate Clint Lee disagree while Councillour Ward and candidate Kevin Mitchell agree with the aforementioned bolded statement.
Those are just some of the answers you may want to know when casting a vote on election day - Saturday, November 15.
The Executive of CUPE 403
Mario Stays on as 1st VP #CUPE #CUPE403
As noted in a previous article, Mario Fruttarol recently retired from the Township.
The good news is that Mario is back in an auxiliary role with the Township. This will permit Mario to continue as 1st VP with Local 403 and allow him the opportunity to continue to work with Debbie Whyte who is now Local 403's full-time representative in the union office.
It must be noted that we recently witnessed the transfer of "Louie" from Mario to Debbie. It was a struggle; however Debbie was able to pry Louie from Mario's cold, live hands.
The Local would also like to recognize Randy Scott's fine piece of Art he bestowed upon Mario at our September membership meeting.
