2020 Convention Postponed

The  HEU  Provincial  Executive  has  voted  unanimously  to  postpone  the  union’s  32nd  biennial  conven-
tion until the fall of 2021.

The  decision  to  postpone  convention,  which  had  been  scheduled  for  November 2020,  was  difficult.  But  the  safety  and  welfare  of members and the general public were given top priority.

Provincial   Health   Officer   Dr.   Bonnie   Henry   has   extended   an   order   that   bans   gatherings   of   more than 50 people.

To  maintain  HEU’s  democracy  and  accountability,  audited  financial statements and officer reports will be sent to locals this fall, in lieu of delivery at convention.

The  union  is  also  moving  much of  its  education  program  online,  including table officers training, to keep  members  connected  to  their  union.
