Important – Contract Ratification Vote Information

Dear Friends,

Given the current circumstances, we have received permission from CUPE National to hold our contract ratification online through an application called Simply Voting.

Here is some basic information in regards to the vote:


  • The vote will go live on Wednesday April 1, 2020 at 1:00pm and will close on April 3, 2020 at 8pm.

  • You will receive a user ID (your staff ID#) and a password from vote@simplyvoting.com . Please add this email address to your safe sender list so it doesn’t land in your junk mail.

  • The ballot will have 2 documents attached. A summary of all of the amendments and improvements as well as the full Memorandum of Agreement.

  • Please DO NOT forward the union office any emails from Simply Voting that has your user name and password – if you have questions, give us a call or send us a separate email.

Information Webinar

  • You will be emailed a link to an information webinar from GoToWebinar.

  • Karen, Ross (CUPE National) and Adam (Contract Chair)¬†will hold an information webinar at 1pm on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 – you will be able to watch a live presentation of the tentative agreement and will have the ability to ask questions.

  • We will email the summary of the changes to the collective agreement at 10am on April 1st, prior to the webinar.

  • The webinar will be recorded and posted for later viewing if you cannot join us live.

The Contract Committee is recommending voting yes to the tentative agreement.
