Who Can Attend?

During the spring before Convention, each MGEU Local elects a Delegate(s) to attend Convention as their representative(s). It’s their job to elect the Provincial Officers (President, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Vice-Presidents) and debate, listen, and vote on resolutions (submitted by Standing Committees, Area Councils, Component Executives and Locals). It’s also their chance to get to know members from across the province, and find out more about the people who help drive our union.

The number of delegates elected is determined by the size of each Local. A Local is entitled to send one delegate for its first 150 members, plus one additional delegate for each additional 100 members, or a major portion thereof.

For 2023, the deadline for electing delegates and alternates was June 30, 2023.
