The Annual Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL) Summer Camp will be held on August 10-16 at Shekinah Retreat Centre, near Waldheim.
The Political Action & Education Department would like to offer our members who work tirelessly in the Education sector an opportunity to celebrate Education Week as a workplace group.
The rules are:
1st submit a request to [email protected] by Friday, October 26, 2018 with the following information:
- SEIU-West affiliated workplace name
- Number of SEIU-West members working in your workplace
- How you plan to celebrate Education week
We will review your request and agree to reimburse you for your purchase of goodies, draw prize or gift card based on this pre-determined scale that is reflective of the size of the unit:
- Up to $20 for those units with up to 20 members
- Up to $40 for those units with over 20 members
To receive the reimbursement, we must receive a member expense form (indicating Celebration of Education week) with original receipts by November 9, 2018. Please forward all member expense forms and original receipts to PA & E Department to the attention of Shawna Colpitts ([email protected]).
Please note that we will cover the cost of cake, snacks or prizes only as our campaign fund is limited… so union leave will not be provided.
Please forward any pictures of your group enjoying the goodies or the draw winner(s) receiving the prize or gift card to [email protected] during Education week so we can share the on our social media pages.
Please let us know whether your unit responds favourably or not…and share details with the appropriate Internal Organizer/Union Rep so that they know when the events will be occurring in your workplace.
Thanks for all that you do!
Period poverty describes the struggle faced by women and girls who cannot afford the cost of menstrual products, like pads or tampons. Having a period is a regular occurrence for 50% of the population; however for those who cannot afford basic sanitary supplies, it can become a monthly ordeal that limits their ability to go to school or work. Access to period products is a necessity, yet 1 in 3 Canadian women have sacrificed something else to buy pads or tampons.
The 3sHealth Employee Benefits team is proud to release a new section on 3sHealth.ca to help plan members find the information they need more easily.
