Here is an update on a couple of issues that have been in the works with STAS for quite a while.
1- After many months of negotiations with STAS, we are nearing the final stages in being able to secure a break room for all members working downstairs in the HBS room. The room was previously used by Coffely and will now be rearranged for our usage. This room will be secured with a lock code and will also be equiped with +80 lockers (enough for both shifts), tables, chairs, microwaves and a toiletroom.
2- We are also happy to announce that we have acquired a new changing/locker room on the second floor for all female members. The old locker room will now become the changing/locker room for all male members. Two full locker rooms upstairs to accomodate all of our members. The SCT's office will be moved to the 3rd floor.
3- STAS has authorized the union to install a WI Fi hotspot exclisive for the AB break room and all the members . STAS has also agreed to cover the cost of this installation. No cost for the Social Club or the union. Network Name: VIP Password:montreal
4-The AB break room door remaining open is currently an issue being looked into and the installation of an automatic "door-closer" is being discussed with STAS. Remains to see if ADM has to approve it first. In the mean time, please MAKE SURE TO CLOSE THE DOOR BEHIND YOU.
5-The Social Club has installed 1 Coffee Machine and 1 Vending Machine in the AB break room. The prices will be at least half of those in the YUL stores.100% of all of the profits from the soft drink machine will go directly back to the Social Club.
6-Please take note that every purchase made from the vending machines, a percentage of the profits gets reinvested back into the social club. Therefore, we strongly encourage all your generous purchases.
Furthermore, I would like to take this opportunity to thank André Bécotte and Vince Hampartsoumian, for all their numerous contributions in helping the Social club and its success.
