2023 Triennial Executive Councillor Election

2023 MoveUP Executive Councillor Triennial Election

What is the Executive Councillor Triennial 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 2023-2026 Executive Council positions will commence on May 1, 2023 and end on April 30, 2026.

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.

Voting in the executive councillor triennial election concluded at the deadline on April 26. The results of the election will be emailed to members who work in the applicable EC areas. Please see below for election results, as well as information on by-elections required to fill positions that remain vacant.
