2018 Executive Elections
Elections to the CUPE 3911 Executive Committee will be held on Saturday, December 01st, 2018 at the General Monthly Meeting at CUPE 3550, 14207 115 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM, per the motion made and carried at the AGM. You must be present at the meeting in person or via the telephone to vote.
This notice is given per Section 9 – Nomination, Election and Installation of Officers. We will be giving regular updates of declared candidates and the positions for which they are willing to stand.
Therefore, we are asking that any member who is interested in standing as a candidate for any position declare herself/himself as early as possible, by email message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that:
Declaration as a candidate is not, in itself, sufficient for inclusion in the election. Each candidate must be nominated by someone who is present at the election meeting in order to be included in the election.
Nor is advance declaration as a candidate NECESSARY for inclusion in the election. Although we are encouraging advance declaration, any eligible member who is properly nominated at the election meeting will be included in the election.
If a candidate cannot themselves be personally present at the election meeting, they must have provided advance "acceptance" of nomination of the specific position in order to be included in the election. Declaration of willingness to stand by email message to email@example.com would be sufficient for this.
More than one member CAN declare themselves willing to stand for the same position. That is what elections are all about.
The positions that will be elected on December 01st are:
