Dear Sisters, Brothers and Comrades,
Second Round Elections commenced February 28, 2023, and concluded March 7, 2023, in compliance with Article 8 of the Toronto Local By-Laws (Ver. June 15, 2021). Ballot counting occurred on March 13, 2023 from 10:31 a.m. to 9:11 p.m. In addition to the Election Committee and an independent third party (Bridge Consulting) nominee appointed union members participated in the ballot counting as scrutineers.
The Local Executive is aware of the March 12, 2023 bulletin by President Qaiser Maroof. The bulletin speaks to President Maroof overturning and redoing both rounds of the 2023 Toronto Local elections. Late on March 12, 2023 the Toronto Local Executive held an emergency executive meeting to discuss this issue. President Qaiser Maroof was given the opportunity to attend the executive meeting and did not. As such the following motions were unanimously passed by the Toronto Local Executive.
First Round Elections commenced on February 13, 2023 and concluded on February 20 in compliance of Article 8 of Toronto Local By-Laws (ver. June 15, 2021).
Ballot count took place shortly after 9:00 a.m. on February 22, 2023 and was completed at approximately 5:00 p.m. on February 23, 2023. In addition to the committee and independent third-party (Drew North Consulting), the counting of the ballots was witnessed by approximately twenty (20) scrutineers.
Sisters and Brothers,
The local will be consulting this week on the Restructures and Staffing. We will also be putting on a “Virtual” information meeting regarding the staffing process and selection of assignments for both West and South Transportation members.
