Elections to the CUPE 3911 Executive Committee are held each year at our AGM and annual conference.
In the interests of an open, democratic election, we post regular updates of declared candidates and the positions for which they are willing to stand.
At election time, keep checking back here for details.
When we announce our available positions, any member who is willing to stand as a candidate for any position should declare her or himself as early as possible, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that:
- Declaration as a candidate is not, in itself, sufficient for inclusion in the election. Each candidate must be nominated by one person present at the election meeting in order to be included in the election.
- Nor is declaration as a candidate NECESSARY for inclusion in the election. Although we are encouraging advance declaration, any eligible member who is properly nominated at the election meeting will be included in the election.
- If a candidate cannot themselves be personally present at the election meeting, they must have provided advance “acceptance” of nomination in order to be included in the election. Declaration of willingness to stand by email message to email@example.com would be sufficient for this.
- More than one member CAN declare themselves willing to stand for the same position – that is what elections are all about.
The 2020 election will take place November 14, at the locals annual conference and AGM.
Details on Executive positions and nominees will be regularly updated and available via the document below.
