CUPE Newfoundland and Labrador’s 2023 Human Rights Conference will be held on the weekend of September 30th and October 1st in Gander, NL at the Quality Hotel and Suites. It promises to be an exciting weekend filled with information, learning, and fun.
The Executive of CUPE 1615 has approved funding for two members to attend. To express interest, please contact Natalie Webber of the Education Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon has possible.
See Section 13 of our by-laws regarding Delegates to Conferences, Conventions, Schools and Seminars and note that members attending conventions must have been active in the union over the past and must have attended 50% or 5 of the 9 general monthly meetings during the past 12 months. Note that this meeting attendance criterion may be waived upon appeal to the members attending a regular monthly meeting. In the absence of a regular monthly meeting an appeal may be made to the Executive.
Attendees of this CUPE NL 2023 Human Rights Conference are suggested to bring orange shirts as September 30th is a day to honour and remember all those who never returned from residential schools and all those who survived. Wearing orange on that day is a recognition that Every Child Matters.
