Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As some of you may be aware, CUPE National has granted CUPE Locals time to address an issue regarding members in good standing.
Union members need to “apply” to be a member in good standing within a local which also comes with a nominal fee from $1 - $10. This application and fee allows members the right to vote on all union matters. Without such approved application and fee members may ONLY vote on their contract.
With all that being said, we are trying to rectify this and are trying our very best to make every member a member in good standing.
As you may or may not know, our elections are soon approaching (NOVEMBER 2019)! It is imperative that you fill out the member in good standing application form in order to exercise your ability to vote.
If you have any questions regarding the upcoming elections, please do not hesitate to contact your election committee. The members of this year's election committee are: Chief Returning Officer, Sarah Timm (Inside), Carole Landry (Inside), Kyle Cahill (Outside) and Deven Huauta (Sudbury Housing).
CUPE National has approved a waive of the application fee for 2020 ONLY! After that, the fee applies.
As an additive, We have developed a discount card that any member that completes in full the form attached will receive. Lots of savings can be had!
Who can apply for a membership card?
What happens if I do not fill out the membership in good standing application?
Why is this coming up now?
“I already filled this out”
How long will this take?
Please know that we are trying our very best to resolve this issue, and that moving forward it will be included so that any new hire receives this documentation right away. Should any members have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me at 705-560-4705. Any further questions can be sent to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
