BY-LAW CHANGE

June 20/2023

ART. 9

WHEREAS, the C.U.P.W Toronto Local cannot fully guarantee complete and 100%, access to a ‘zoom’ or other ‘audio-visual’ meeting to its membership without technical glitches,

AND WHEREAS, this could affect members during the qualification period for the Union’s National Convention,

AND WHEREAS, the Toronto Local executive or membership has not introduced a transparent and glitch free method for a member to raise a point of order, leaving the President to decide what member speaks next,

AND FURTHER, an executive officer currently must attend to the operation of the ‘zoom’ or ‘audio-visual’ meeting, thereby not allowing that person(s) to fully participate in the membership meeting,

THEREFORE, the Toronto Local of C.U.P.W will not hold any ‘zoom’ or ‘audio-visual’ General Membership Meetings until such time as the executive can fully guarantee a member in good standing access to such a meeting, proposes a process for dealing with points of order and a speaker’s list during such meetings, and does not disenfranchise an executive officer or any other member from not being fully able to participate in the membership meeting. This information is to be documented in a duly passed By-Law.

The Toronto Local can hold a hybrid meeting where the in-person meeting is still held at the hall or other such building announced by the executive and an ‘audio-visual’ or ‘zoom’ meeting is offered simultaneously, but the member would accept any risk of technical glitch or non-access to the meeting if they chose the ‘zoom’ route.

In both cases, the local executive shall make every attempt to attend in person.
