December 10, 2021 - Thursday, the final day of our Local Union Delegated Meeting, began with special guest speaker Tamara Ramusovic, a partner with the law firm Moore Edgar Lyster. She provided Delegates with an in-depth presentation regarding the legal requirement of employers to ensure a psychologically-safe work environment and how the Union can ensure that these requirements are enforced. With the intensifying pressures members are facing at work, the presentation contained lots of information Delegates will be able to use back on the job.
