The City of Saskatoon’s organizational structure was re-aligned in the fall of 2013.  The new structure does not totally align with respect to some of the current Area Vice Presidents’ roles.   As a reminder for the Area Vice President positions, you must work in the area in which you are submitting a nomination form, and only people working in, for example, Corporate Financial Services can vote for the Area Vice President of Corporate Financial Services.  Voting will follow the organizational structure prior to the re-alignment.

Completed nomination forms need to be returned to

the Union Office by 1:00 p.m. on Friday, June 5, 2020.

Signed forms can either be returned by email to cupe59@sasktel.net OR
