CUPE 1004 members elect an executive board that is responsible for the local. There are four table officers and twelve unit chairs that make up the composition of the board. Executive board is accountable to CUPE 1004 members. The local elects Trustees to verify that the financial records are in accordance with the policies and procedures.


  • Nominations open in January
  • The local runs annual elections in March
  • Elections are conducted electronically to make it more accessible for all members to participate. All members vote for the table officer and trustee positions. Only members from those specific work groups are eligible to vote for that specific unit chair position.


  • Executive board meets at least once per month
  • The board is accountable to it’s members, so reports are provided at the monthly membership meetings regarding the activities of the local.
