October General Council is cancelled
Recent months have raised multiple issues within our organization. While this summer’s lull allowed us to proceed at a more normal pace in scheduling meetings for our decision-making bodies, things began to change dramatically in late September.
We are now facing the second wave of the pandemic and a maximum alert level in several regions. Under these circumstances, we need to focus on supporting our members and helping them meet the many challenges awaiting them over the next few months. Every APTS team will be fully mobilized, and the schedule we had developed this summer for decision-making bodies is simply unsustainable.
As a consequence, it was decided to cancel the General Council that was supposed to take place on October 14 and 15. However, decision-making bodies will still be meeting over the next months to provide directions as we negotiate the renewal of our collective agreement. The national negotiating committee will be convened on a regular basis, as well as the General Council when necessary.
