Save the date! Telephone Town Hall on Thursday March 21 at 7pm 

CSSBA will be holding a one-hour telephone town hall on Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m.

The town hall provides all unionized Community Social Services members with an excellent opportunity to hear background information on the proposed contract and to ask questions of bargaining team representatives. You do not need to do anything, except to save the date! On March 21 around 7 pm, we will be calling you and inviting you to join in on the conversation and ask your questions.
