It all starts with your local
As an NSGEU member, you are entitled (and encouraged) to attend and participate in your local’s regular meetings. There, you will have an opportunity to raise any issues or concerns that you have and begin working on ways the union can help you address them.
Every NSGEU local elects the following officials who take your local’s issues and concerns to the rest of the membership thereby gathering information and support from a broader base:
- Delegates to NSGEU’s Triennial Convention;
- NSGEU Regional Council Representatives;
- NSGEU Occupational Council Representatives;
- Candidates for a variety of NSGEU Board Committees.
The members elected to these positions are of vital importance to your local’s ability to leverage the power of your membership in Nova Scotia’s largest union.
