Wednesday will be a great day for a walk

Hello once again from the command centre (hey, I thought I would try something catchy to get your attention).

Say, did all of you read the latest Table Talk from March 27th? Please make sure that you do.

In an effort to continue what we have started collectively to put pressure on our employer by showing we are united and determined, I would really appreciate it if we could take a three block walk from MCB on Wednesday, which happens to be April Fool’s day. On that day, members across the province are hoping to spend time on their lunch or break at their local MPP’s office. Just to let them know once again that not only are we employees in the OPS, but we are constituents and voters too.

If people can arrange to walk over starting around 11:50am and spend just 10 minutes at the LaSalle Mews office of MPP Sophie Kiwala, we can join with members from other OPSEU locals and our supporters in being a visible reminder. A visible reminder we are still dissatisfied with how the employer/government is handling the negotiation process. If you want to carry your own OPSEU flag from your desk with you when you go over, that would be great too. I would really like to see all who have participated in our outdoor shows of solidarity in the past and many more new faces if you can make the time to be there. For those who have a later lunch, there will still be a gathering at MPP Sophie Kiwala’s office around 12:30 for you to join in.

We have been assured by our Bargaining Teams these types of activities are noticed and the stronger the level of support, the greater the impact. Please make an effort to participate. I have done my best to will the day to be sunny weather (+3 too) for the walk over.

I thank you. We may even have something to share with our MPP that day as well?
