CMG delegates to CWA Convention – Election to be held February 14 – 21

Thirteen members have been nominated to contend for a position to represent CMG at upcoming events involving our union: the CWA Canada National Representative Council meeting in April, the NewsGuild-CWA Sector Conference in July, and the Communications Workers of America (CWA) Convention also in July.

To aim for our standard of 5-branch representation,  the following delegate is automatically elected: Charmaine Straker of APTN.

To determine the remaining five (5) delegates who will represent us at the convention, a vote will be held through the CMG online voting system, from Tuesday, February 14 at 9 a.m. ET to Tuesday, February 21 at 11 p.m. ET.

All CMG members in good standing can vote for up to five (5) candidates. At least one of the selected candidates must be from The Canadian Press.

When polls open on Tuesday, February 14, you will receive an email with your 9-digit CMG Identification Number. You will also receive your 6-number randomly generated Pass Code.   You will also receive the link to the voting system.

The following thirteen candidates are vying for the remaining 5 vacant delegate positions from two branches.
