BE IT RESOLVED that CUPW send a six-person delegation to the CISO Symposium, which will be held in Montreal on November 29 & 30, and December 1st, 2018.”

This conference is organized by the Centre international de solidarité ouvrière (CISO) (International Centre for Worker Solidarity), a vital forum where Quebec unions come together to focus on issues of international solidarity, particularly with a view to sharing resources and exchanging alternative information.

Delegates will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • Applicants must have demonstrated commitment to the Union.
  • Priority will be given to applicants who have experience with the issues and activities of the delegation.
  • Insofar as possible, the delegation must include members of equity-seeking groups.

On returning, the participants will be required to write a 300 to 500-words report on their experiences at the conference.
