On August 12, the PIPSC Board of Directors met in a special session to discuss the resumption of in-person meetings of PIPSC members. After extensive discussion, the Board determined that all in-person member meetings will be suspended until the end of 2020.
The Board recognized the important role that in-person meetings play in the life of our union and the strong desire to resume such meetings at the earliest possible date. However, they also recognized that ensuring the health and safety of our members and staff was their highest priority.
The member meeting status webpage has been updated to reflect this change.
The Board of Directors continues to monitor the situation on an ongoing basis while preparing for the eventual resumption of in-person meetings, and will revisit the situation prior to the virtual Annual General Meeting on December 5, 2020.
In the interim, constituent bodies are encouraged to continue to conduct their business virtually through the use of Zoom or other video/teleconference means.
