Nominations for BPS Delegates now open!
Publish date: Tuesday, May 18, 2021 update
BPS Delegates shape our union priorities for 2021 – and beyond! Help approve the annual budget, financial statements, and other union business for the coming year.
AMAPCEO members in seven Broader Public Sector (BPS) bargaining units have received an email calling for nominations to fill their unit-specific Delegate positions.
There is one vacancy in each of the following units:
- Ontario Ombudsman – French Language Services Unit
- Ontario Ombudsman – Children and Youth Unit
- Ontario Health – Quality Unit
- Public Health Ontario
- Ontario Arts Council
- Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care
- Financial Services Regulatory Authority
Under the AMAPCEO Constitution, members in BPS units separately elect a unit-specific Delegate (one from each BPS unit who represents all unit members regardless of where they work) to ensure that all bargaining units are represented at the annual convention. BPS Delegates serve a two-year term.
Delegates have two major roles: to sit with their District Director as members of the District Executive Committee and to attend our annual convention (the Annual Delegates’ Conference, or ADC) where the President and other executive officers are elected, the annual budget is approved, and major policy decisions are made.
Nominations will remain open until noon (ET) on Wednesday, June 2. If elections are required, they will be held by electronic ballot in early June.
