Nomination Forms Available for Election 2017

CUPE Local 59 has upcoming elections on June 8, 2017. When these elections are held, the Local must adhere to our current Bylaws regarding the election process. If changes to our Bylaws are to be contemplated, they must be submitted and voted on at our annual AGM on September 30, 2017.

As per the Local’s Bylaws, elections will take place on Thursday, June 8, 2017. Nomination forms are now available and must be received at the Union Office in person by Monday, May 8, 2017. The following positions are up for re-election:

General Vice President
Recording Secretary
Area Vice President, Community Services (except Parks)
Area Vice President, Police & Fire
Trustee Position (1 year term)

Note: All positions are for a 2 year term unless stated otherwise

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 Performance/Asset & Financial Management can vote for the Area Vice President of Corporate Performance/Asset & Financial Management. Voting will follow the organizational structure prior to the re-alignment.

If you would like a nomination form, please contact the Union Office at or 306-652-6963 to arrange pick-up.
