Dear sisters and brothers:

OCHU’s number one priority is the health and safety of our membership. The situation with the COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact our province, and existing recommendations encourage the limiting of large gatherings in an attempt to help stop or slow the spread of the virus.

After thoughtful discussion and consideration, OCHU’s executive had previously decided to¬†postpone the OCHU Annual Convention, scheduled to take place in Niagara Falls, April 27-30. Upon further discussion, and approval from CUPE National, the Annual Convention will not be rescheduled for 2020. All elected positions will have their tenure extended to 2021. These positions will then be elected for a one-year term, to ensure conformity with the constitution.

Thank you for your continued support.

In solidarity
Michael, Louis, and Sharon
