The Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL) will hold its annual convention on October 26-29, 2016 at Queensbury Convention Centre (located at Evraz Place) in Regina.
The SFL represents over 100,000 working women and men in Saskatchewan, from 37 national and international unions. Its goal is to improve working people’s lives throughout the province, whether organized or unorganized, and regardless of affiliation to the SFL.
The convention is a wonderful opportunity to get involved in Saskatchewan’s labour movement, and advocate for better social, economic and environmental policies. Delegates will enjoy two and half days of education and plenary sessions, and have the opportunity to debate and vote on policy and constitutional motions. Awards, presentations and guest speakers are also part of this event.
To support the SFL and its convention, the SEIU-West Executive Board has agreed to sponsor up to 30 members to attend the convention as delegates. Four of these spaces are being reserved for Young Workers – if you an SEIU-West member who will be 29 or younger on opening day of Convention (October 26) you can apply for one of the four designated spots.
This includes the registration fee, accommodation and travel costs, meals and lost wages or honoraria.
SEIU-West can only send so many delegates so get your expression of interest in as soon as possible!
