Check-In September 27th, 2021
Just a reminder of the Local Meeting set for Wednesday September 29th at 6pm at the Legion In Sackville. Please note that while in Phase 4 there will not be supper provided, but supper may be claimed as a result.
Our local had a resignation from the local executive last week. Our VP of Communications, Crystal Isert, has decided to step down from her position due to personal reasons. At this time I would like to thank Crystal for her long-service to both the local executive and NSTU as a whole. Crystal served on the local executive with four presidents and many other leaders from our local. I am sure any of the other three former Presidents could fill this page with stories and thanks for Crystal during her service. In addition, Crystal was a Provincial Executive member and served on numerous local, regional and provincial NSTU committees.
In addition to this service, Crystal is a true unionist choosing service over self-interest, genuinely being there on behalf of our membership, a trait our union continues to need and in my books is one of the best traits a union leader can have. In addition, Crystal is thoughtful and thorough, both caring and kind, and could put a member at ease with her giving personality and smile. On behalf of the local there are not enough words to thank you for your service, and it is hoped that we all see you back soon in any capacity you wish to serve in.
Thank you Crystal!
It is in your Provincial/Regional Agreement
