Nominations are now open for the three bargaining committee member positions for The Salvation Army Harbour Light ARC. The collective agreement says that one member must be from 108, another member from 119 and the third member from either 108 or 119. It is therefore important that you select your worksite on the nomination form. The Chair of the Bargaining Committee will be one of the three elected Bargaining Committee Members and will be chosen by consensus by those three members.

Nominations are now open until 5:00 p.m., Tuesday, May 2, 2023

You can find the nomination form below. Please make sure that you check the appropriate boxes when completing your nomination form. You may include with your nomination more information about yourself, support from a member(s) or, telling the members why they should elect you. Your additional information must be in black and white and fit on one 8.5" X 11" page.

Elections, if necessary, will be conducted by a secret ballot of all staff at The Salvation Army Harbour Light ARC covered by the collective agreement. A notice of election including voting instructions will be sent out at that time.
