Location Unit structures and positions available
Our union’s bylaws require a minimum of three executive officers for a LEC: a President, a Vice-president, and a Secretary-Treasurer.
Beyond that, executive committees can and are encouraged to build a structure that reflects the needs of members in the specific location unit. Click below to see current structures in different CMG branches:
The election votes will be held between December 4 and December 7, 2018, and the elected candidates will start their two-year terms on January 1, 2019, in accordance with Article 6.14 of the CMG by-laws.
