MoveUP Convention Call

July 29, 2021

To: All MoveUP Members

The MoveUP convention will be taking place from Thursday, October 28 to Saturday, October 30, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency – Vancouver.  Convention is the supreme governing body of your union, and delegates to convention elect your vice-presidents.

The theme for this year’s convention is “Breaking Barriers – Embracing Diversity”.

Packages will be sent to the job stewards and executive councillors in your area and will include detailed information, the delegate entitlement for your executive council area, as well as the expression of interest form. The delegate entitlement sheet indicates how many members from your executive council area are able to attend, as well as a list of who all of the job stewards and executive councillors are for that area. Due to the nature of these lists, that information is only being emailed to your executive councillor and job stewards in your area.

All executive councillors are automatic primary delegates to convention but still must register by completing the expression of interest form indicating whether you are able to attend.

If you are interested in attending convention, completed expression of interest forms must be received at the union office by 4:30pm on August 27, 2021 to the attention of Shelley Martin ( Rules governing eligibility and the number of delegates for convention can be found in the MoveUP Constitution.

In solidarity,

David Black, President
Lori Mayhew, Secretary-Treasurer
Rysa Kronebusch, Vice President
Christy Slusarenko, Vice President
Annette Toth, Vice President
