To all Local 4304 members,
Once again, a reminder goes out to all members that nominations are OPEN for all Executive Board, Steward and Committee positions for both bargaining units for the coming General Elections. Members may continue to view the nominations for all positions online at: http://tiny.cc/2021Local4304Nominations. This spreadsheet is continually updated as nominations are received and accepted or rejected.
UPDATE: An additional sheet has been added to the nomination tracker called ‘Descriptions’ which is colour-coded to the various nomination sheets and provides useful information on all the various union positions, including descriptions of each position/committee and their duties. If you have been sitting on the fence about running for a union position, or do not know what some of the committees are or what they’re expected to do, reviewing the description and duties may help you decide what to run for; you may even discover that a passion or hobby you enjoy outside the workplace may be useful on certain committees that you may never have thought of serving on!
Nominations for all Executive Board positions close – NEXT WEEK – at the end of the April General Membership Meeting on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.
Nominations for all Steward and Committee positions close at the end of the May General Membership Meeting on Wednesday, May 19, 2021.
All nominations should continue to be sent to the Recording Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org before the close of nominations or may be given orally at the respective General Membership Meeting. Nominations from members for a member other than themselves must also be accepted by the nominated member to be included on the appropriate ballot.
I would also like to request AGAIN that all members make every effort to share this information among the rest of the membership. If you are inclined also please post this message in the workplace locations where you are working from or forward this to members who may not yet have registered on the Local 4304 website. Management-imposed pandemic restrictions on entering the workplace have made it difficult to post the required information as widely as possible since we are not permitted to enter the workplace except for our required work shifts; having the assistance of other members to post this in locations they are already working out of would be greatly appreciated!!
Yours in solidarity,
Unifor Local 4304
