CUPE 3903 will be holding by-elections for the following offices:

  • Vice President – Unit 3
  • Chief Steward  — Unit 4
  • Bargaining Team Member (1 vacancy) – Unit 4

Nomination Period: October 26 — November 9, 2018

The nomination period for this by-election is from Friday, October 26, 2018, until November 9, 2018. The Union Office (located in 143 Atkinson Building) will be open weekdays from 10AM to 5PM during this nomination period.

Nomination Guidelines

These are unit-specific positions which means only eligible candidates in that unit, who are in good standing, can run for elections.

Candidates nominating themselves for these positions must fill out the Nomination Form (forms are available at the union office) with their name and signature. Each candidate must also have the names and signatures of two other members who support the candidate on the form. These two members must be from the same unit that the election is held in.

Once the nomination form has been completed, the candidate will need to drop it off at the union office and put it in the Nominations Box (located on the front desk in lobby area).

A sign-in sheet will be attached to this box, which the running candidate must fill out and sign at that point. It is important that this sheet is signed when dropping off the nomination form. Failure to do so will result in the candidate becoming ineligible to run for election.

At the end of the nomination period, the Elections Officers will contact all candidates.
