Unifor Convention Resolutions

Breaking News:

Both of these resolutions were endorsed by the Unifor Local 222 membership meeting on Thursday, May 5, 2022.

Local Unions can, and should, send resolutions to the Unifor Constitutional Convention to advocate for the policies our members need. Here are two important resolutions on improving pensions, and getting back to the fundamental union principle of equal wages, benefits and pensions. Both of these resolutions were endorsed by the Local 444 membership meeting, but the more Locals that support them the better.

Equal Wages, Benefits and Pensions

Resolution for the Unifor Constitutional Convention 2022

Improve Pensions Now

Resolution for the Unifor Constitutional Convention 2022

These resolutions will be proposed to the Local 222 membership meeting on Thursday, May 5 at 3 pm at the Local 222 Hall – 1425 Phillip Murray Ave. in Oshawa.

Please attend the meeting to help get these resolutions passed.

Other Ideas for Resolutions?

If you have other ideas for resolutions you would like to see adopted write them down and bring them to the meeting on May 5. If you are unsure how to write a resolution, we are happy to help. The deadline for Locals to submit resolutions or Constitutional amendments is May 10, 2022 at 5 pm ET. The process is described in the Call Letter.

Here are the pages from the Call Letter that describe how Locals submit resolutions or amendments, and guidelines for writing a resolution. If you have any other questions – please contact us at:
