2020 Executive Councillor Election

What is the Executive Council Election?

Every three years, MoveUP holds elections for all Executive Councillor positions in all areas across our union. Each Executive Councillor position has a specific constituency of members that they represent.

All Executive Councillor positions are for a three-year term. The 2020-2023 Executive Council positions will commence on April 30, 2020 and end on April 29, 2023.

Executive Councillors are viewed as leaders in their workplaces. They are individuals who are active and engaged and want to get more involved in the governance of our union. Along with their regular job steward responsibilities, they also attend five annual meetings and are responsible for our union’s governance including approving our annual operating budget.

How do I vote in the Executive Council Election? (Voting opens on April 6)

All voting will be conducted online through the Member Portal. Please see the section on registering for the Member Portal to ensure you have access to voting.

Electronic voting will be open beginning on Monday, April 6 at 8:30 a.m. and will close at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 28.

You can cast your vote by logging on to the Member Portal any time during the voting period.
