CALL FOR NOMINATIONS FOR CEIU DELEGATES TO THE 2018 PSAC CONVENTION

As the National Nominations and Elections Chairperson and on behalf of the Canada Employment and Immigration Union (CEIU), I am hereby calling for nominations for CEIU delegates to the 2018 PSAC Convention.

The regulation governing the nomination and election of CEIU delegates to the PSAC Convention is CEIU Regulation 2. As per this regulation, each region shall place before the delegates attending the CEIU Convention, for the confirmation of election, the names of all nominees for delegates and alternates to the PSAC National Convention.

However, due to the trusteeship, the CEIU Convention was held in February this year. In light of this, all nominations that will be received by the deadline date of 6:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) on October 6th, 2017 will be considered confirmed for the upcoming election.

Each local can nominate a member, or members in good standing to be considered a CEIU delegate to the 2018 PSAC Convention. The nomination form below must be completed and signed by the Local President and received in the CEIU National Office by no later than 6:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) on October 6th, 2017 to be considered.

As per the resolution which was adopted at the 2017 CEIU Convention, which asked the National Executive to look at the feasibility of holding electronic voting in the future, CEIU will be holding the election of the CEIU delegates to the 2018 PSAC Convention by electronic vote. The electronic voting process will be held the first two weeks of November 2017 by SimplyVoting, a web-based online voting system that is secure and confidential, allowing members who have personal email address to vote online. Further information will follow on the election process.

A campaign is underway asking members to text in at 647-496-0575 and provide or update CEIU with their personal email address in order to receive a personal PIN # to vote for their regional delegate to the 2018 PSAC Convention. Without a personal email, CEIU will not be able to provide you with your personal PIN # to vote.

Watch out for your campaign card arriving at your desk within the next couple of weeks and check your Union bulletin board. Providing CEIU with your personal email address enters you in the contest for the chance of winning a GOPRO or a POLAROID SNAP TOUCH. The contest ends October 16th, 2017.

In exceptional cases only, should you not be able to supply CEIU with your personal email address, please contact the CEIU National Office should you wish to vote in this election.

 

In Solidarity,

Jacques Lambert
National Nominations and Elections Chairperson
