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 run for an Executive Councillor position?
Nominations will officially open on Tuesday, February 25 and will close on Friday, March 20 at 4:30 p.m. Please watch this space on February 25 for information if you are interested in becoming an Executive Councillor.

How do I vote in the Executive Council Election?
If more than one candidate submits a nomination form for an Executive Council area, then an election will be held. If there is only one candidate from a particular area, that candidate will be acclaimed and no election will be required.
A bulletin advising members of all acclaimed individuals, and contested areas requiring elections, will be issued within a few days of the deadline.
