Delegates to Convention 2021 – 1st & 2nd call for Nominations

TO:                  ALL MEMBERS – CUPE LOCAL 873 

Dear Sisters, Brothers & Friends;


As you know, the PHO has announced BC’s Restart: a four-step plan staging a gradual reopening and loosening of Covid-19 restrictions.  The plan is contingent on various factors, including Covid-19 case count, hospitalizations and percentage of the population vaccinated.  Due to these variables, we are unable to definitively announce the format of Convention 2021.   The Union is in the process of contingency planning for multiple alternatives, based on the status of the pandemic recovery and any relevant public health orders. As part of this planning process, the Union is sending out the calls for nomination as per the requirements under the bylaws. We will be providing further updates about convention in the near future.

As required by our By-Laws, this is the FIRST (1st) & SECOND (2nd) call for nominations for Full Time/Regular Part Time and On-call Delegates to Convention 2021This year, Convention will be held over three (3) days, October 26th to 28th with the format to be determined and announced. 

Please note: There has been a change in the category names for delegate positions, to align with the change made by BCEHS. Members historically referred to as “Part time” are now referred to as “On-call”

You will be advised at a later date as to the number of delegates entitled to attend Convention for your Region.  Please note that nominations must be for members in good standing in the Union.
