The CMG’s biennial convention is coming up quickly: it’s set for May 23-25. One of the things that delegates will be doing is debating amendments to the bylaws of the CMG, which set out how the union governs itself. The CBC branch of the CMG also has bylaws, which are subject to the broader CMG bylaws.
If there are things that you want to change, this is your opportunity to propose amendments – even if you’re not attending the convention. The deadline for proposals is Wednesday, March 26. No proposals will be accepted after that date.

Propose resolutions to the CMG convention
If you would like to propose a resolution – which directs the union or branch to take a position on an issue or undertake a specific action – you can use the same form.
Resolutions are accepted right up to the convention, and can even be made from the floor; however, it’s useful to submit them early so that delegates have some time to consider them fully before voting on them.
If you have any questions about the process, please contact staff rep Keith Maskell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
