Emergency LEC Meetings(Posted Dec 21, 2020)
There were two emergency LEC meeting invites sent out today. The OPSEU Staff representative, Pauline Cheslock, was in attendance at both meetings. The LEC representatives were given only 3 hours to respond to each invite.
At the noon meeting, our staff representative pointed out that the meeting's agenda was out of order and needed to be taken to the membership via GMM. This meeting did not pass the approval of the agenda.
At the 3pm meeting, the LEC representatives were asked to pass minutes of the 9am meeting. Not all representatives at this meeting attended the 9am meeting. The meeting abruptly ended when the motion to pass the prior meeting minutes did not get passed.
Please note there was no motion regarding any sort of funding in either meeting regardless to what has been circulated otherwise. Please reach out to your LEC Unit stewards for more in depth understanding of what transpired. -- Jason Naughton
