At a previous General Membership Meeting, members of Local 3906 voted to send up to 10 delegates to the upcoming CUPE Ontario Annual Convention in Toronto, held between May 29th and June 2nd. The Convention offers members an opportunity to help implement policies for political action, amend internal affairs of CUPE, and develop the general strategic direction of our union. More information about the convention can be found by clicking HERE.
An election for these delegate positions will be held at an upcoming Special General Membership Meeting taking place on Thursday, April 11th at noon in BSB 147. This meeting will begin with an election of the CUPE Ontario delegates, and will be followed by Unit 1 member
Members from any Unit (Unit 1, 2, or 3) can run, and we envision the election of these delegate spots to take no more than 15 minutes. If you cannot attend the meeting but are interested in attending the CUPE convention, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and state your interest. The second part of this meeting – the ratification of Unit 1 bargaining priorities – is applicable only to TAs/Unit 1 members.
As always, the meeting is in an accessible location, pizza lunch is provided (halal options, gluten free/vegan options), and childcare costs involved with facilitating your attendance will be reimbursed.
