Regarding: USW Local 9511 Nominations for Union Stewards, Grievance  

                     Committee and  Executive Committee Officers    


Dear Members of USW Local 9511,


As per Article IV (four) of the Local By-Laws, the USW Local 9511 will be establishing the Election process for our new Union Stewards and Executive Committee Officers for the next three years. The Election (voting process) if required will commence on Monday, March 12th, 2018 and close Friday, April 6th, 2018. The current Executive Committee Officers feel that it is vitally important that we start the nomination process earlier than the normal protocol requires, due to the geographical area in which the DRIVETEST Centres are located (Province wide). Furthermore, the USW Local 9511 will be accepting nominations from Monday, February 05th, 2018 to Wednesday, February 28th, 2018, for the following positions within the Local of 9511:


Eleven Executive Committee Officers positions available:

If you know someone who is interested in becoming an Executive Committee Officer, please inform your nominee to view the Local 9511 website “Executive Committee” to review the “Duties of the of the Executive Committee.” (www.usw9511.ca)


Three Grievance Committee Officers positions available:


Current Grievance Committee Officers:


President: Alvin Malcolm, Kingston

Officer Marie Derane, Ottawa

Officer John Longley, Lindsay


The Grievance Committee Officers will be appointed after the Election by the Newly Elected Executive Committee Officers.

For clarity, two of the eleven (11) Executive Committee Officers will hold a position on the Grievance Committee. Furthermore, The President by acclimation and Local By-Laws must hold one of the two positions on the Grievance Committee. If you know someone who is interested in becoming a Grievance Committee Officer as well as Executive Committee Officer, please inform your nominee to view the Local 9511 website “Grievance Committee” to review the “Duties of the of the Grievance Committee.” (www.usw9511.ca)
