CANCELLED

Following substantial discussion, the Executive Board has made the decision to cancel the March regular meeting of the VDLC due to the present COVID-19 pandemic. 

While we have important business to conduct, we believe it is crucial that the labour movement lead the way in helping to stem the tide of COVID-19. We therefore do not wish to ask our delegates and guests to place themselves, their coworkers, friends, families, or communities at greater risk by attending a large meeting. 

We are also calling on government to take emergency action to protect workers, including ensuring paid leave from work so that nobody has to make the impossible choice between staying home when ill and being able to put food on the table. 

In the interim, the Executive Board decided to circulate the Presidents Report which would have been delivered at the meeting as a way of providing some update on recent Council activities.

We note that March is Period Promise month, and it was our intention to continue our collections for this important campaign at the regular meeting. We will continue to accept donations of period products and cash donations for the purchase of products until March 31.

Donations can be dropped off at our office or sent via mail. For drop-offs please phone the office in advance to ensure that someone is available to receive your donation. 

We anticipate resuming our regular meeting schedule with our April 21 meeting and will provide confirmation of this and meeting details prior to that date.
