We hope you are safe and well as we move into the cooler months.
COVID-19 has brought adjustments to the way our union operates. For instance, provincial health regulations caused us to have to postpone our June 2020 triennial convention until June 2021.
This is to let you know we're also postponing our steward elections until 2021. Local elections are postponed until early 2022.
In the meantime, elections will still be held to fill vacancies. The postponements for the general elections are happening because they're required to occur after the convention, as per our constitution.
We hold local elections every three years. Every position on the executive is open to nominations. Positions include chair, 1st vice-chair, 2nd vice-chair, 3rd vice-chair, treasurer, secretary, members at large, and young worker representative.
We encourage members to become active in their BCGEU locals, and by doing so, play a greater role in our union's governance.
We'll have more information about the 2021 steward and local elections, and the triennial convention, in the weeks to come.
