Nominations for the executive committee elections will be open from Tuesday, February 2 to Monday, February 22 at 5pm. All members in good standing are encouraged to run for the executive positions listed here. For a fuller description of the responsibilities of the executive committee, see articles 8 and 9 of the CUPE 3903 bylaws. Please note that the TFAC Co-Chairs will be elected through a separate process.

Nomination forms must be completed in accordance with Article 14.l of our bylaws:

(b) Nomination for any position must be signed by the nominee and by two additional members in good standing and addressed to the election officers. Nominations must be brought to the union office during the nominations period. Each nominee must also record his/her nomination by signing the register that is to be publicly displayed next to the nomination box.
(c) Only members in good standing can be nominated and no member may sign more than one (1) nomination for his/her own candidacy in the same nomination and election period.
(d) If at the end of the nomination period only one (1) candidate is nominated, the executive, on the advice of the elections officers, shall declare the position filled by acclamation.

Please note that nomination forms for unit-specific positions (namely Chief Stewards and Vice-Presidents) must be signed by two members of that unit.

A minimum of two weeks of campaigning will follow the nomination period. Voting will begin at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), which will take place on the week of March 7. A more detailed timeline will be posted soon.
