Region 3 Area Councils

Sisters & Brothers

The Executive board is pleased to announce the formation of OPSEU Area Councils in Peterborough & Oshawa. Both Area Councils will join the Orillia Area Council ensuring we now have an Area Council in each service area of Region 3.

Area Councils play an important role within OPSEU. Area Councils are made up of only OPSEU locals within the service area. It gives OPSEU locals an opportunity to network and work together. Area councils areĀ  a submitting body for convention resolutions and constitution amendments, they can set policy for our Union.

Corporate OPSEU rebatesĀ  90% of their Area Council dues back to the local.

The Executive board would like to encourage locals to affiliate with your respective area councils.
