Reminder: Nominations at CBC Vancouver by Friday, February 8

This is a reminder that nomination forms for the election of the Vancouver Local’s new president and vice-president must be submitted to a member of the Election Committee before 4 p.m. this Friday, February 8.  You can get a nomination form from one of the three members of the Election Committee – Annick Forest (6285), Colin Preston (6750), and Hélène Dupre-Espeut (6316) – and fill one out for yourself or nominate a colleague.

As you know, the president and vice-president selected during the last local elections for the mandate starting November, 2011 had to step down last summer.  I took over the president’s position on an interim basis; Colin Preston did the same for the vice-president’s position.

The CMG CBC Branch bylaws require that there be a by-election when local executive positions are vacated for more than six (6) months before the end of the mandate (January 2014).

Your union needs you

I strongly encourage you to consider running for one of these positions, or to volunteer as a member of the Vancouver Local Executive Committee.

Unions exist to protect your workplace rights, but can only do so if they are strong. Strong unions are built when many people get involved, each giving a little time and effort.

Participate and help improve your working conditions and those of your colleagues!

In solidarity,

Annick Forest
Secretary & Interim President
CMG- CBC Vancouver Local Executive Committee
