From Tuesday, March 26 to Thursday, March 28, Canadian Media Guild (CMG) members working at CBC/Radio-Canada will have the opportunity to vote on the tentative agreement reached between our union and the Corporation. The vote will take place online using our electronic voting system.
You will need your 9-digit CMG member number in order to vote. CMG member numbers are different than CBC employee numbers.

Between next Tuesday morning and Thursday evening, members can vote online.
The online ballot box will open on Tuesday, March 26 and close on Thursday, March 28 in most time zones.
