  1. Nomination Results Updated

Click here for an updated copy of the CUPE Local 5678 Nomination Results  for the upcoming CUPE 5678 elections.  The document lists all nominees and acclaimed individuals.

Please note that a few spelling errors have been corrected, and additional candidate name added to the election for Steward – Facilities & Information Technology Services. This individual submitted their nomination form by the deadline, but was mistakenly left off the previous version of this From.

Where a nominee has been acclaimed, that person will automatically be appointed to the position without an election and will not appear on the ballot.

If a nominee wishes to withdraw their nomination, please contact Returning Officer Dan Sawyer at dsawyer@cupe.ca.

  1. Interim Returning Officer

CUPE National Representative Dan Sawyer is serving as interim Returning Officer, as the local does not currently have a member attached to this position. This is a position that should ideally be held by a member of 5678, not the National Representative. If you are interested in serving as the Returning Officer, please see the ‘Seeking Volunteers for the Election Committee’ below.

  1. Seeking Volunteers for the Election Committee

Your union is currently seeking two volunteers to serve on the Election Committee to help oversee the nomination, campaigning, and voting process.

Volunteers must be members in good standing, cannot be running for any position in the current election, and cannot actively campaign for someone already nominated.

  1. Voting Period and Process

The vote will be conducted online from Monday, November 7th to Wednesday, November 9th. Specific details will be released shortly.

  1. Campaigning and Campaign Materials

Nominees who wish to have campaign materials distributed to members should provide them via email to both info@cupe5678.ca AND dsawyer@cupe.ca.

The union will make all reasonable efforts to distribute materials to members via email and courier to worksites.

We encourage all candidates to give due consideration to the way that the size, formatting, or complexity of campaign materials submitted for distribution may make it difficult or impossible for the union to provide wide distribution to the full membership.

If any candidate has any questions about the above, please reach out directly the Returning Officer Dan Sawyer at dsawyer@cupe.ca.

  1. Conduct

All CUPE 5678 members, including all nominees, are bound by the CUPE Equality Statement. Any violations of the Equality Statement occurring as part of or related to the campaign period or election should be reported to the Returning Officer at dsawyer@cupe.ca as soon as possible.

  1. Election Rules
