The following is a statement issued by the Local 793 Election Committee regarding the union election.

Ballots for the union election were mailed out Monday, July 18, 2016.

Mail out of the ballots had been delayed due to a possible mail disruption. However, there appears to be a window of opportunity to send out the ballots, as Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers are still meeting, so the election committee has opted to proceed.

All ballots must be returned by Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2016. They will be counted by the accounting firm selected by the election committee on Thursday, Aug. 11, 2016.

Please note, because there is still the threat of a postal service disruption, the election committee is requesting that Local 793 members fill out and return their ballots as soon as possible after receiving them.
