Met with the committee on the 11th and 12 of October.

All departments will be at one single table.
TOR (as seen by the committee) and will be first thing on the agenda.
Strategic planning of what we would like to see in a guideline
A request of what guidelines the departments have right now for the use of contractors.
Requested a date for meeting on Nov 10, but push back for meeting on Nov 6th. DND requests that this be finished by Dec 31.
Are the guidelines considering individual contractors for one job versus managed services for contracting out. Options and risk analyses need to be done for large projects.
2 Contracting out update
Still working on presentations that we can give at L&L as well as one for the Consultation Presidents.
The other thing that is going on is that from the last exec meeting that was brought to Debi Daviau who approved it. Speaking with Eddie Gillis and staff, this has begun to be seen as a campaign. There is question of who is leading on this. Michael Urminsky is staff working on this and there was training being planned. Our concerns were put forward that we need to be the lead on this.
Eva has been working on the training information as well as the request for interest for stewards but it was sent to all members and not just the stewards.
A second email needs to be sent out to all members.
Most of the responses have come from the Atlantic since it was spoken of at the Atlantic Steward Council. Executive are asked to spread the word. Robert Scott could send out to Subgroup presidents as well.
An email was sent about the contract that was recently put out by SSC as requested by Craig Bradley. Eva received a short reply.
Grievances that will be filed really need to be templated so that each grievance uses the same language.
Questions raised at the council and admission that we are going in with blinders
Robert did great work on a database since the staff were entering information on a spreadsheet which would be somewhat difficult for analysis. Only issue is how to share it with who needs it.
Sharing database with Informatics and that we would log in with portal account.
Or online and pay a fee to have it hosted where people can access it.
3 Lobbying Update
Tomorrow is the lobbying day at Parliament for PIPSC. Each of the teams have CS member who will be talking about Contracting out during the lobbying of MPs.
4 PIPSC AGM
Email to be sent out to the delegates of the PIPSC AGM re conduct of delegates.
Arrange for changes since the Executive since the post mortem added day.
Spreadsheet ready for resolution discussion.
Kiosk to be available and Denise will man the kiosk.

Networking and keeping everyone at the hotel for games and a bar set up.
Promo items: Everything is ordered and will be there for the AGM
