Note that should any of the nominees wish to withdraw their nomination prior to the election, they should contact me directly via email ( to do so.

In order to prevent any issues of inaccurate lists I will be confirming members who are partial load or who are unsure of their status at the polling station. If you are partial load or believe you are partial load at the time of the vote in order to confirm you are in good standing with the local, you will be required to provide your pay statement to show Union dues deductions as well as hours worked. Your pay statement will need to show your name and employee number as well. If you wish to blackout other areas, you may. If you are partial load or believe you are partial load and you do not provide a pay statement, I will have to segregate your ballot and then confirm your status afterwards which may take days or weeks.

The process will be as usual for all other members who require to be a signed member of the Union in order to vote. If you have not signed a union membership card you can do so at the polling station.

All full-time faculty and partial-load faculty who are members of the union are eligible to vote.

The vote will take place Tuesday February 18, 2020 at the following locations:

Woodroffe: (8:30-4:00) in C215B

Pembroke: (10:00-4:00) in Room 435

Perth: (10:00-4:00) in Room 118

In solidarity
