Nominations for the executive committee general elections opened on February 22 but were suspended on March 5 because of the strike. Nominations are now re-opened until Wednesday, August 1, at 4 pm. Elections for the Unit 4 (part-time librarians and archivists) bargaining team follow the same schedule.
Candidates must fill out a nomination form, available at the CUPE 3903 Strike Headquarters (45 Four Winds Dr, Unit Q-1), as the move back to Atkinson is scheduled for Thursday August 2. Candidates must sign the register when they submit their nomination form. For the Vice-Presidents, Chief Stewards, and Unit 4 BT the positions are unit-specific: candidates must be members in good standing of that unit. The members who sign the nomination form must also belong to that unit. All other positions are open to all four units.
Once the nomination period closes, there will be two weeks of campaigning, which will end at the Annual General Meeting on August 15, where voting opens. Voting will continue for five days after the AGM.
