  • Region 4 – We are unable to have union meetings in Region 4 as the CO’s are currently closed due to COVID; therefore, any Region 4 members that wish to nominate someone for the VP position can send their nomination letter and the nominee’s acceptance letter to the union office at unionoffice@unifor506.ca by September 30th.

Please note that members wishing to attend the union meetings in Saint John, Moncton and Fredericton must pre-register with their Regional Chairs as no more than 10 members can attend the meeting to ensure that social distancing is maintained.  Masks and hand sanitizer will be available.

All nominees are asked to forward their resumé to the Union office on or before September 30th, 2020

The Election Committee will then meet on October 1, 2020 to perform its duties as per Article 8, Section 8.01 of the Unifor Local 506 By-laws. If an election period is required, the Election Committee will declare it to be from October 15th to October 31st with the online polls open for voting for that two-week time period.  An email will be sent to you shortly with a user name and password that you will need in order to submit your vote online.

As usual, this election will be conducted online and the results will be announced on November 2, 2020.

In solidarity,

Angela Davis,
Unifor Local 506 Election Committee Chair
