In the collective agreement it outlines the Local Union President will conduct union duties two days per week, with regular DE/CSA duties three days per week during the months of June, July, and August. This year, we have agreed to a slightly different arrangement to meet a specific need of the company, and increase the availability of the President during those three months.
New Home Under Construction!
Developing a website is tough! We have had a couple unexpected technical hurdles (no MySQL, FTP transfers, etc), but now we are in full design mode!
Currently the website has it's Content Management System installed, however there is no content on the site yet (most content is currently filled with lorem ipsem as place holders). The CMS we have installed will allow us to publish content as easily as writing an email, giving us a much easier way to update our members as fast as possible. It is also built in a modular form, allowing us to modify content, layout, etc as needs change, however this does require a fair amount of set up, and the mistake was made to install the CMS live instead of developing it locally. It just means it will be in a state of incompletion as we work at it.
The overall structure of the website will have static pages with content that is updated infrequently (Steward & Executive Contacts, Links to other resources, etc), and blog-type content which will be updated with the most up-to-date information, and will be able to be indexed to allow members to search past posts by theme or keywords. Once the pages have been determined and set up, we will focus on the overall look of the website.
If there is content you would like to see on the site, please email email@example.com with ideas. Also, if you have photos you would like us to use, please let us know. Together we can build this website to benefit all of our members across the province!
