This year’s event will feature several highlights. It is the first AGM with newly elected President Darlene Jackson, who was elected at AGM 2018 and officially began her role on July 1. She succeeds former President Sandi Mowat, who served in the role for 10 years beginning in 2008.

Day 1 of AGM business will begin with introductory remarks and the approval of the agenda. President Darlene Jackson will provide her first President’s Address to delegates at approximately 9:30 am, followed by a presentation of reports at 10:30 am. The afternoon will feature a keynote address by union organizer Jane McAlevey at 1:30 pm, and Vice-President Candidate Speeches at 4:15 pm.

Day 2 will also include a packed agenda. CFNU President Linda Silas will provide greetings shortly after Call to Order at 9:00 am. During the lunch hour, delegates will break for a rally at the Manitoba Legislature beginning at 12:30 pm.
