CUPE National’s health and safety committee is seeking nominations for a health and safety leader and activist. The committee is looking for someone who has made a significant health and safety contribution. This person has solved problems, achieved important victories, established precedents, improved workplace conditions, or helped to recognize occupational illness or disease.
The closing date for nominations is Friday, July 29. Nominees should be a CUPE member or a retiree in good standing. Nominations may be made by a local or CUPE division and must be signed and supported by the local president and one other local or division executive member. The award will be presented at CUPE’s 2011 National Convention in Vancouver.
Please note that CUPE staff and current CUPE national health and safety committee members who have sat on the committee within the last five years are not eligible to be nominated for the award.
The nomination form is available online and must be completed and submitted by July 29.
