CUPE 3799 attended the 56th Annual CUPE Convention

The 56th Annual CUPE Convention was held in Victoria BC May 1st to May 4th. A full convention report will be provided at the next general membership meeting but the highlights would be a visit from the Premier of the Province, CUPE President and Secretary Treasurer reports and Ivan Coyote who will be coming to UNBC as a writer in residence. We had elections for all of the CUPE BC Executive board and the Northern RVP and alternate.

CUPE BC decided to enforce a rule of only one alternate allowed on the floor. So Helen and Mandi had to be guests and seated in separate section to the side of convention.
