This message is to announce that CUPE BC is now accepting nominations online for all 21 committees for the 2021-2023 term.
Please note that the 2022-2023 committee nomination process is slightly different than previous years. The nomination process has been revised to bring it into closer alignment with CUPE National processes. In addition, we are asking nominees (applicants) to submit their own nominations, which will allow us to capture information to help build more inclusive committees.
At this time, we are asking nominees to complete the form themselves (not nominators: Locals or District Councils) and to self-identify as members of any equity-seeking groups. If you are a nominator completing the form online on behalf of the nominee, please consult and obtain permission from the nominee prior to submitting the form.

Submission Deadline: Monday, July 5, 2021 (end of day)
