Comrades and friends,
The CUPW National Executive Board (NEB) has recommended our membership support a contract extension proposal. Our CUPW 730 Executive and membership (GMM motion, July 11, 2021) are both unanimously recommending that the proposal be rejected because it is strategically short-sighted and does not adequately satisfy the needs of our members. Below is a broad overview and analysis of the proposed extension. The ratification votes will be conducted virtually, or by phone, on August 25 (RSMC) & 26 (Urban), 2021. Full voting times and registration guidelines can be found in the dispatch below.
Regardless what your vote is, fully inform yourself and register to vote. To do this, update your contact information ASAP to receive your voting credentials in the mail (www.cupw.ca/en/member-contact-information-form). If you have any questions, please contact our local office (780-423-9000) or visit our website (www.cupw730.ca).
Who Can Vote?
Only Members In Good Standing (MIGS) in each respective bargaining unit, with updated contact information, can vote on the ratification of the proposed contract extension. If you have not yet signed your CUPW membership card, or have any further questions, visit or call (780-423-9000) our office.
The ratification votes will be conducted virtually or by phone. In order to vote, National office must be able to reach you and send you your voting credentials. Please update your contact information here: www.cupw.ca/en/update-my-info
RSMC and Urban members will each have their own meeting presentations, voting days and times. Extra time slots have been added to accommodate the different shifts. Once you have updated your contact information, you will receive your voting credentials either by mail or email. From there, select one time slot in your classification to attend and vote.
