It has come to the attention of the Executive Committee that the Donations Policy has not been properly implemented. From the CUPE 3902 Policy Compendium:
Donation requests made directly to the membership must be submitted at least fourteen (14) days in advance of a general membership meeting. The Executive Committee will prepare a standard form for such donation requests and post it on the Local website along with this policy. Donation requests made or referred to a membership meeting must be sponsored by the Executive Committee or a member in good standing. Notice of the request, including all relevant information about the organisation, group, cause, or campaign, and the amount being requested, will be posted on the Local website at least one week prior to the membership meeting. Notice may be waived only for strike support donations.
Although this policy has been in place for several years, we realise that members are not used to it being enforced. For this reason, the Local wanted to give members notice that the above Donations Policy will be followed going forward. We ask members who are planning to put donations requests forward to do so at their earliest convenience; you do not have to wait for meeting announcements to submit your requests.
