In Your Corner – Pat Mongeon, Steward for School of Health and Community Services

It is December already, time is passing very quickly this semester and the pressure is on this time of year. Self-care is very important for faculty, as it is a very stressful time for the students and as we support the students, we need to continue to take care of ourselves, and create a positive work environment for all. As union stewards, we are here to help support you to communicate with your deans and follow our collective agreement. It is important to balance your workload and ensure all work assigned is on your SWF. For example the recent Open House would be recorded on your SWF if you came out to work. Take note of the new SWF icon on our website to help you to better understand your SWF. Communicate with your steward if you would like to clarify any aspects of our collective agreement. Also on Thursday Dec 17th at 1:00 there will be a General Membership meeting with a social event following to celebrate the Christmas Season. Hope to see you there!
