Are you Ready for Convention?

With Convention just a few days away, we hope you have your travel booked, your suitcase dug out of the attic and your devices charged and ready to go. Hopefully you have time to cut the lawn one more time too.

We are pleased to let you know that all Convention documents are now available on the UNE website at

In preparation for next week, we highly recommend you go through the documents so you are ready to go from the outset.

Convention Information

This section includes important information on subjects such as the Convention agenda, UNE’s Attendance Policy, Environmental Sensitivities Policy, Statement on Harassment and some nice light reading on the Acronyms used by our Union. We also have a policy about bringing in outside food. Some members life threatening allergic reactions to scents and some foods, so please read this section carefully.

Convention Procedures

Documents that outline the rules and procedures for Convention, such as the PSAC Rules of Order, Tiling Guidelines and the PSAC Constitution are also available on the website. We encourage you to read them in advance. Be sure to join us on Sunday for Delegate training for a “Convention 101” presentation where you will have the opportunity to find answers to your questions.

Reports and Accompanying Documents

During Convention business, delegates will be presented with resolutions from the reports of the three Convention Committees. The reports are available on the website for you to look at in advance.

We can’t wait to see you in Toronto! If you have any last minute questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

In solidarity,

The UNE Events Team
