How do members become part of the Bargaining Unit Executive?

The TTBU Executive is elected every two years.

Any member of the Bargaining Unit may run for a position on the Executive.

In an election year, nominations are submitted no later than 15 days prior to the Annual General Meeting. Candidates are given the opportunity to make a campaign speech at the AGM and to respond to questions asked by attendees at the meeting. The election takes place a week later. Secret ballots are cast in schools and worksites and the entire process is managed by an Election Commission.

Please see the articles under Bylaw 4 – EXECUTIVE  of the TTBU Constitution for a detailed explanation of the election process. A description of the duties of an Executive Officer are detailed under Bylaw 4.1.
