Montreal ACC: Call for Nominations – Contract Committee

This year there is a Contract Committee position up for election in the Montreal ACC.


  • Only CATCA members working within the Montreal ACC may run for election. Nominations will open July 1, 2016 and must be received by the National Office no later than 12:00 ET July 15, 2016.
  • For this position, voting will be done electronically through Simply Voting. Please see the ACC Branch Chair with any e-voting questions.
  • Voting will take place August 1 to August 15, 2016 (12:00 ET).

Roles and responsibilities of Contract Committee:

  • To faithfully reflect and bring forward the views and concerns of the members in each area and facility, as well as the membership as a whole;
  • To provide necessary guidance and resources to the negotiators at every stage;
  • To regularly communicate with and update the members; and
  • To deliver the best possible tentative agreement for the members’ approval.

It is important to remember that while the Contract Committee makes all decisions leading up to the tentative agreement, it does not conduct the actual negotiations, nor do Contract Committee members individually bring contract proposals to the table. Contract proposals must be discussed, adopted, and submitted by Branch meetings called for that purpose.

Nominations must be accompanied by this nomination form. Candidate biographies can be submitted and will be distributed with election packages. All forms must be sent electronically to National Office at Faxed copies will NOT be accepted.

For those considering running, please note that the first meeting of the committee will take place in Ottawa in mid-late September 2016. Our intention is to hold ad hoc meetings in October.

In solidarity,

Peter Duffey                                             Doug Best
President                                                  Executive Vice President
