The general meeting was held on Thursday October 1st in Quesnel. There was a good representation of locals from the north with over 12 different locals. The business of the council was conducted with greetings from Trent Derrick, NDP Candidate, Cindy McQueen GVP and Karen Wong RVP.
For the first time in the history of NADC we had a school in Quesnel. It was a great school with classes in steward learning series, retirement planning, financial officers and a new course woman breaking barriers. Many thanks to Denice Bardua and her local for the planning and efforts during the school. Nice to see the various members helping out.
The weeklong class “Duty to Accommodate” is underway in Quesnel at the Best Western Tower Inn. Union activists are learning the ins and outs of how a member is legally required to be accommodated for a variety of issues in the workplace.
The remainder of the courses for the week will be held at Helen Dixon Centre, part of the SD#28 Training Centre
The classes for the Fall 2015 NADC are not being held at the recommended hotel for the school (Best Western Tower Inn) but rather at the SD#28 Continuing Education building at 241 Kinchant St. Please see the map for how to get there from the hotel.
