The duties of each position can be found here.
Motions to be voted at AGMWe wish to create new positions in our Executive Committee to improve our communications with all members, as well as our interaction with the Regional Offices. To this end, we will put to a vote two motions at the AGM to amend our by-laws and create: (i) a Communications Officer position; and (ii) a Regional Office Shop Steward in each of the regional offices. If the motions are approved, we will then proceed to request nominations from members for the new posts and hold an electronic vote in the weeks that follow the AGM.
Voting ProceduresOnly members in good standing will be eligible to vote in the election of the six executive positions up for renewal. You are a member in good standing if you have completed a white membership card. If you have not done this yet, please contact a member of the Local’s executive and they will give you a card to be completed and signed prior to the Assembly. An online voting mechanism will be made available for the eligible members in the Regional Offices and those on official travel at the time of the Assembly. More information will be provided for electronic voting in the coming weeks.
