District 3: Manitoba local union leadership meetings 2023

November 8, 2022 | News Articles

To: USW Manitoba Local Unions and Staff

Sisters, brothers & friends,

We are scheduling regular meetings of the Manitoba local union leaderships beginning in 2023.

Previously, the District would hold irregular Presidents’ Meetings. These meetings were useful for locals, staff representatives and staff from the D3 office to get together and discuss issues in the province.

We are now moving to establish regular, broader-based meetings of Leadership, both in-person and via video conference. Hopefully, Local Unions can include other leaders in these meetings such as WOS chairs, NextGen representatives and/or LDS students. We will be discussing provincial politics and legislation, issues at the Federation of Labour, bargaining, emerging grievance-arbitration issues and any other issues impacting members and local unions in Manitoba.

The first meeting will via Zoom on Friday, January 20, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. CST (90 minutes).

An in-person meeting will be held at the Union Centre, Thursday, March 2, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. (Room 107).

Please RSVP to Sue Haralson ( with who will be attending these important meetings on behalf of your local union. If you have any questions, please contact Area Coordinator Mike Pulak.

In solidarity,

Scott Lunny
