Elections for position Chief Steward this week

Hello Everyone,

Our Local OPSEU 365 is holding an election for the position of Chief Steward from two (2) nominees from within our Steward body. 

The 2 nominees are Karen Mauro and Rose Dunford—both long standing Trent employees, both with excellent Union experience!  Information on each candidate was emailed to Members--if you did not receive the email, let us know via opseu@trentu.ca or call extension 7557.

The Chief Steward is an important position within our Union Executive—they are a strong advocate for our Union, they coordinate the grievance process for the Local, assist our stewards with grievances they are handling, and are a source of knowledge and training for our steward body.   

All OPSEU 365 members are eligible to vote—contract, part-time & full-time. 

 To vote, bring a piece of photo ID (for example your campus photo ID card)

Election dates will take place as listed below:

Voting is not allowed by proxy—that means you have to vote in person at one of the locations listed below.
