If you are considering seeking annomination for the President or Trustee positions, we strongly recommend reviewing Section 8 of the CUPE 3261 By-laws titled “Nomination, Election, and Installation of Officers” for detailed information on the nomination procedure and eligibility.

Why Should I attend?
General Membership Meetings set the priorities of our Union. Decisions are often made that directly affect
you, and they are made based on the attendance to each meeting. If attendance is low, this could mean that decisions involving how your dues are used, or who will represent you at the negotiating table, for example, are decided by a select few. General Membership Meetings are only about 2 hours long and are held only 3 times a year. Whether you’ve never missed a GMM, or have yet to attend your first one, we encourage every member to try to make the time to attend this upcoming GMM and join your co-workers in shaping your union.
