NUPGE's first videoconference

When it rains it pours! Not only did OPSEU conduct its first webconference on Monday, but NUPGE also held it's first videoconference with participants from components in 8 locations across Canada. OPSEU's First Vice-President Patty Rout participated from the theatre at Head Office while President Smokey Thomas called in via telephone as he was not in Toronto.

NUPGE has gone with Polycom hi-definition system for its videoconferencing.

While there were a couple of glitches that are being worked out, the meeting was a success and an opportunity to both demonstrate the new system to NUPGE's National Executive Board and to share the latest information about the federal political scene. The NEB heard a short presentation from NUPGE President James Clancy and then had a Q&A/discussion.
