NOV. 13/2017 E-blast sent to membership

Dear CUPE 5555 members:

As many of you are aware, our local elections open at noon tomorrow. As it is the first time our local has had online voting, I have had members contact me requesting more info and how to access.

Unfortunately I do not have any info at this time as I am not involved in the election process. There was an elections committee put in place at our last General membership meeting as per our By-laws. Once the information is provided to me, I will send out an E-blast.
