Attention:          All Members – CUPE Local 873

Dear Sisters, Brothers & Friends;

Re:       Elections – Delegate to Convention 2020 

Please be advised that elections are now open for Convention 2020 Delegate positions.

As we indicated during the call for nominations for delegates to convention, the COVID-19 Pandemic will most probably impact the normal operation of Convention 2020. The Union is still in the process of contingency planning for multiple alternatives, as we continue to monitor the status of the pandemic recovery and all relevant public health orders. As part of this planning process, the Union is continuing with the process for delegate elections as per the requirements under the bylaws. We will be providing further updates about convention as they become available. 

Please note some regional delegate positions have been won by acclamation and do not require an election. Please see list below for regional delegates that require an election.

  • Reg 1N – On-Call Delegates
