A member in good standing is equally entitled to the rights noted above with the addition of being eligible to run for union positions, to vote in union elections, vote on budgets, by-laws, and motions made at membership meetings.
To ensure all our members of CUPE Local 905 are MIGS, there are three steps each member must take:
Members must fill out a membership form, which must then be signed by a witness (another MIGS) or emailed directly to the local (firstname.lastname@example.org)
By signing the membership form, the member is agreeing to the oath which is printed on the form.
The names of those who completed the membership form will be presented for approval at the subsequent Local 905 General Membership Meeting (GMM).
Once all these steps have taken place, you will be a member in good standing. If there are any questions about this process please feel free to reach out to your steward, unit executive, or the signing officers at CUPE Local 905.
