UCTE Convention, originally scheduled for July 19 to 22, 2020 in Edmonton is now postponed. Delegates who may have already submitted for union leave with their employer for these dates should rescind the leave.
The Convention Committees meeting that was scheduled for the week of May 11, 2020 has also been cancelled. A new date has not been chosen for this meeting however the decision has been made to host these meetings virtually.
In accordance with the PSAC Constitution, Components are required to have our convention 6 months prior to the start of the PSAC Convention. As a result, the UCTE Convention is tentatively rescheduled for November 6 to 9, 2020.
We are still hoping to be able to have a full convention however, it is only fair to let you know that, given the current situation in the world, we are planning for every possible scenario at this time – from hosting a full face-to-face convention to a fully digital convention; whether the convention runs the usual length of time or do we shorten it. Everything is up for consideration at this time.
If you know that you will not be able to participate in the convention in November, please advise Lira at the UCTE National Office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or your regional vice-president.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to figure this out.
