Notice of Interest for Station VP’s

June 25, 2013

Brothers and Sisters:

We are presently looking for representatives in select stations that have a vacancy. Present Station Vice Presidents were elected 1 year ago for a two year term according to the By-laws of CUPE Local 4848. With resignations and vacancies remaining an expression of interest will be offered to those stations with a vacancy before an interim representative is reassigned.

If you are interested in the opportunity to make a difference in the working conditions for you, your friends and your colleagues, this is a great challenge for you.

The Local and Employer are in Mutual agreement to post only Job Postings of stations that meet the linguistic profile on March 20, 2013. The agreement is to allow time for employees to have official language testing completed before jobs with a bilingual requirement are posted again. What this means is, those jobs posted on March 20 will not have a bilingual requirement in the qualifications. The Local asks for your patience with this matter.
