We are pleased to announce that Lennon Stevens was successful in his bid to join our Executive team! He was elected at the Special Executive Meeting held on Friday May 28, 2016 and will join the CUPE 998 Executive Committee effective immediately. We would like to acknowledge and thank both Lennon and Shantelle Cnockaert for offering their names for the position and for their ongoing commitment to our local union and the membership.
With regret the CUPE 998 Executive has accepted the resignation of Executive Member Tina Goddard. We would like to thank Tina for her service to Local 998 and its members over the past four years and wish her well in future endeavours. Tina’s departure leaves a vacancy in our team and as per the Constitution the reduction will be filled by a Steward or member in good standing and with Executive approval.
Members interested in joining the Executive team are encouraged to put forward their names to Recording Secretary Lisa Horishney by Thursday May 26, 2016 at noon. In the event that more than one person is interested in the vacated position, those interested members are invited to convey their interest and suitability for the position at a Special Executive meeting planned for May 27, 2016 at noon. The Executive will vote in the new member at the meeting after hearing from the candidates and results will be announced to membership on this site shortly thereafter.
Just a reminder that there is a GMM on Thursday, May 12, 2016. See the GMM page for Agenda and financials.
