Good afternoon Members of Local 596.

I am pleased to inform you that OPSEU/SEFPO Local 596 has been taken out of Trusteeship as per the attached letter. We would like to extend thanks to all L596 members for your patience during this time and express our thanks to your Local leaders who have worked hard to continue to assist the members of your Local and who actively participated in this process. We have full confidence that your Local has the strength and solid leadership to not only sustain itself but to successfully build on this experience.
