Votes: 1st VP: Dave Szollosy = 293/ Frank Bruno = 238
Congratulations to Dave Szollosy! Dave continues as our OECTA TSU 1st VP for the 2013-14 executive year! Our members must've been impressed with all the great work he has done for the unit this year, as outlined in his UAGM speech, reprinted on his blog below.
Our thanks are due to candidate Frank Bruno for keeping the democratic election process alive and well in his run for TSU 1st VP. His UAGM speech is also reprinted in his blog below. Unfortunately we can only choose one 1st VP.
Without doubt we could've used another to handle the increasing workload over the last year, and even moreso in the contract year ahead. Hopefully some day the unit will be able to finance that great need. In the meantime rest assured OECTA TSU has a top notch team in place.
As reported earlier, all the other executive positions were acclaimed. My congratulations and warmest best wishes are extended to Bianka Hudec who has stepped up from councillor to fill my vacated TSU 3rd VP position as I finish my final term. Also to Victoria Tuzi [Secretary] and Michael Nicolaidis [Councillor] who are joining the executive to fill the 2 other open positions.
I am relieved that our unit is in capable hands. This year was particularly challenging. However, I wrap up my term of service with the satisfaction of having worked with everyone over the past 4 years or so to implement our positive vision for change.
In solidarity forever!
