The importance of updating your contact info

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Did you get the latest OPS Table Talk newsletter from our bargaining teams?  Did Smokey call you last month?  NO??  Then maybe it’s time to update your contact information.

It’s the one thing we dread doing when we move or change phone numbers; the time to update our contact information.  Just like updating your contact information with your bank or credit card, it’s equally important to update this information with your union.

OPSEU maintains a database of your contact information in order to reach you about important news and notices.  This is especially true during negotiations.  But if you move, that information isn’t automatically updated.  Some people may think it is connected to your HR and pay records but that is not true.  So if you moved 10 yrs ago or last week, it’s time to update your contact information.

I challenge you!

I challenge you to take 5 minutes and update your contact information with OPSEU.. NOW!  It’s easier than ever.  OPSEU has set up an online form you can fill out.  

Some points when filling out the online form

  • If you don’t remember your Membership Number, use your WIN number.
  • Do not use your work email address (eg don’t use jimmy.twoshoes@ontario.ca)
  • Your local number is 468 for those members who’s home locations are located at: 49 Place d’Armes, 80 Queen St, Division St, Family Court on Montreal Street, and 1055 Princess St (minus the ODSP office on the main level).
  • You can always call during regular business hours and update your info as well.  Call OPSEU Resource Centre at 416-443-8888 or Toll Free 1-800-268-7376.
