For the first time ever in CUPE history, CUPE National convention delegates will soon vote on resolutions directly, instead of passing judgment on the recommendations made by the resolutions committee.

A constitutional resolution passed today ended the convention practice of voting on ‘concurrence’ or ‘non concurrence’ recommendations. Many delegates have complained that the process was confusing, and an exercise in ‘guided democracy’ aimed at influencing the decision of delegates.

“Let the delegates on the floor make the decisions,” said one delegate in favour of the change.
