Local 048 First AUPE Life Member

Local 048 Vice Chair (retired) Sheila Veldhoen became our first life member.  

From AUPE Constitution:

4.08 (a) Life members: consisting of all those persons to whom the Provincial Executive has awarded Life membership for meritorious service to the Union.

(b) Life members shall be entitled to attend Convention as guests of the Union pursuant to any Life Members’ Policy approved by the Provincial Executive and shall not pay dues.

This is a copy of the write up in the EyeOpener given out at 2016  Convention.

When her employer refused to bargain with the activists who were responsible for a 1998 wildcat strike , Sheila stepped up and attended mediation in their place, which started her union involvement. As a member of the Canadian Health Care Guild, she encouraged the merger with AUPE (in fact she was president - elect of the Guild at the time of the merger). Since then, she has attended every convention, held various chapter and local positions including Provincial Executive representative, been an active Union Steward, and was a member of AUPE's Legislative Committee for Three years.

Congratulations Sheila! Enjoy your well deserved retirement!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really
something that I think I would never understand. It
seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
the hang of it!

Having read this I believed it was extremely informative.

I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this article together.
I once again find myself personally spending way too much time
both reading and posting comments. But so
what, it was still worth it!

When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time
a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment.

Is there a means you can remove me from that service?

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a
blog that's equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently
about. I'm very happy I found this in my hunt for something relating to this.

I do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your blog.
It appears as if some of the text within your content are running off the screen.
Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if
this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I've had
this happen before. Cheers

Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs?
I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would value your
work. If you're even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
