Message from the President

Good evening everyone

On April 13/14, the Introduction to Stewarding and Note taking course is being offered at the North Bay CUPE office, we are wondering if anyone is interested in attending the course.  Depending on numbers, the Local may look into offering the course on a different weekend for just Local 1165 members.

Please let your VP know if you are interested in attending the course.
