CUPE locals are being asked what changes should be made to the rules that govern how many delegates they can send to national convention. The review stems from a resolution passed at the 2001 convention.

The union has grown tremendously since the current rules were made. With the growing number of “mega-locals”, created as a result of restructuring and amalgamations, delegates agreed it was time to take another look at who can send how many to convention.

A task force set up to examine the issue has sent a questionnaire to all CUPE chartered organizations asking for their input. Look for the survey in this month’s general mailing – or fill out the survey online by visiting cupe.ca.

The task force is looking for responses by December 20 in order that it can prepare recommendations to the National Executive Board for its meeting in February
