July 8, 2021, was the first day of CIU’s 19th National Convention. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was also the first day of our union’s first ever virtual convention, with the CIU National President, Jean-Pierre Fortin, chairing the meeting from the studio in Ottawa, and all delegates attending virtually.

Despite these unusual circumstances, delegates were keen to take on Convention business, and had the opportunity to hear reports from the National President as well as from CIU National Representatives. We were also glad to welcome PSAC National President Chris Aylward for the opening address, as well as FB national negotiator Morgan Gay.
