The CUPE National Convention is coming up fast with the convention opening on Monday, October 2nd at 9:30 am at the Toronto Convention Centre. Various Sector Council meetings take place the day before at the Convention Centre starting at 10:00 am. A copy of the full agenda can be found at https://cupe.ca/event/cupe-national-convention-2017 as well as a useful convention mobile app.
At this point we have scheduled one caucus for delegates from British Columbia. This will take place on Monday, October 2nd, 2017 at 12:00 pm in room 716 in the Convention Centre. We may book an additional caucus if needed. Caucus meetings are extremely important as we discuss resolutions, elections and other business at this meeting. I ask that you ensure all of your delegates attend.
As you may be aware, CUPE BC President Brother Mark Hancock has declared his intention to run for re-election as our CUPE National President. Brother Mark has been unanimously endorsed by the CUPE BC Executive Board and has already garnered support from the majority of leaders from other Divisions across the country.
But in order for Mark to be successful we need a lot of help from CUPE BC members with Mark’s campaign during convention. We need numerous delegates to assist with campaign material distribution and convention floor microphone management. If you can assist please email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your name and cell phone number.
In addition please support and share content on Mark’s campaign Facebook page “Mark Hancock for National President”.
