TO:                  ALL MEMBERS – CUPE LOCAL 873

RE:                  1st & 2nd CALL FOR NOMINATIONS – Provincial Recording Secretary

As has already been reported, Jason Jackson was recently elected into the position of Provincial Chief Grievance Officer during a by-election as a result of a resolution passed at Convention 2018. Jason has held the position of Provincial Recording Secretary since Convention 2017.  His acceptance of the PCGO position has triggered the need for an election to formally fill the Provincial Recording Secretary position. 

As per Bylaw 13.d3(b), a call for nominations is required and a special Provincial Executive Board meeting will be held within 14 days of the closing of nominations where an election will occur.  The individual elected through this by-election will complete the balance of the term which ends at Convention 2019 where a subsequent election will be held in accordance with Bylaw 13.b3. 

This is the 1st & 2nd Call for Nominations for the position listed below.  The 3rd & FINAL call for nominations will follow on December 26, 2018.
