Speaking on behalf of over 600 members of Chapter 12 in Toronto and elsewhere, I know that you will find this space both informative and creative. Hopefully, you will become a regular user and also mention this website to your family, friends and colleagues.
After over 15 years in existence, we felt that both current and future retirees expected to have a newer technological means of learning about the past achievement s and current activities of the Executive and our membership. As you can see from the links and archived materials, Chapter 12 has organized and been involved in a wide range of activities from a sporting nature, cultural and long-standing political engagement in close co-operation with Provincial OSSTF, local District 12 and many allied social justice groups. Our calendar of events will surely help to keep you informed about scheduled activities in the weeks and months ahead.
Feel free to contact myself or other members of the Executive by accessing the contact information on the appropriate tab on the homepage.
Membership in OSSTF ARM is a process controlled by Provincial Office, not the local Chapter. If you decide to join our wonderful group, your membership application is a simple mouse click away, by using the button found just to the left of this message. Should you decide to not have your medical benefits provided by OTIP/ RTIP, you will be sent an ARM membership renewal notice by Provincial OSSTF at the end of each year for your $50 fee payable by January 1st. If you are already an ARM member with your medical benefits provided by OTIP / RTIP , then the annual $50 ARM membership fee will be automatically deducted from your January TPP pension payment. No matter how you choose to join and stay involved in Chapter 12, we welcome your membership and encourage your participation in our organization.
Best wishes in Federation,
Manfred Netzel, President
