CUPE 3261 Christmas Parties!

In less than two weeks from now CUPE 3261 will begin hosting the first of five (five!) Christmas parties for this holiday season. This includes four dinner parties held at restaurants across the GTA, as well as our largest party held at the 89 Chestnut Ballroom on St. George campus. All CUPE 3261 members —  full-time, part-time, casual, and contract — across all 3 campuses and all 7 units are invited! (And yes it’s all free).

Members can each bring one guest, and are welcome to attend whichever party they wish (but only one!). You are not limited to the party advertised for your campus or unit. We especially encourage those who work outside of Toronto to join us at the St. George party on December 14th, which features a buffet dinner, cash bar, live DJ, dancing, and raffle prizes!

See below for details, and don’t forget to RSVP before the deadline for whichever party you choose. As with previous years, reserving your spot at the St. George party will also require submitting a cheque deposit which is returned to you upon arrival at the party (find the St. George RSVP form here).
