Leadership Connects

Thank you to everyone who participated in phase 1 of the Monthly Connects initiative – according to the evaluations, it looks like we are on the right path to building a strong voice through effective Locals.

The evaluation conducted in November 2018 provided SUN Provincial with excellent feedback and suggestions for improvement. Based on your feedback and an analysis of the overall initiative, the changes listed below will be made. Similar to phase 1, we will conduct a survey in the Fall to evaluate the structure and delivery of the sessions.

Phase 2 Highlights

  • Monthly Connects will be delivered as part of the Leadership Series and called “Leadership Connects”.
  • Connects will continue to be delivered via video conference using the ZOOM Meetings program.
  • Connects will be held every two (2) months on a designated Wednesday (dates provided below).
  • Communication, including registration information and discussion topics, will continue to be delivered 2-3 weeks in advance of the Connects.
  • The target audience will be the Local Executives for all bargaining units.
  • Participants will no longer be assigned a specific Connect time based on geographical regions. Participants will have the ability to select the Connect time that works best for them.
  • Late afternoon and evening sessions were the preferred timeslots identified by the respondents; two time slots will be available (times provided below).
    • We will continue to monitor and evaluate engagement levels; to determine if additional timeslots are required.
  • The presentation and discussion structure will stay the same, with the provincial updates provided by an Employment Relations Officer (ERO), followed by discussion topics.
