The Association of Postal Officials of Canada (APOC) is a bargaining unit accredited by the Canada Industrial Relations Board representing employees who supervise the processing and delivery of mail, the corporate sales team, and employees who oversee mail conveyance across Canada.
APOC currently have approximately 3400 members in 28 branches across the country, with the largest being Toronto (YORK) and the smallest being Prince Edward Island.
Dear APOC Pacific members,
We had our elections last month and since there was no winner who achieved 50 percent plus 1 for the following position: Branch President, a runoff election will be held.
The reason for this is as follows.
To maintain the integrity of the vote we will follow Article 21.1 of the National Constitution as well as 17.10 of the same document, a candidate will be declared elected when there is a simple majority of votes in their favor (50% + 1). As there is no article within the branch by-laws that states otherwise, this must be the process moving forward.
-Should no one obtain 50%+1 of the votes cast, then the candidate with the least number of votes is dropped from the ballot, and a second balloting must occur.
-This process must continue until such time as a candidate receives the required 50%+1 amount to be declared the victor.
We ask that you please mark an ‘X’ or a ‘√’next to the ONE candidate you wish to elect for the position. Please return your ballot via the return postage envelope provided.
- If you have not received a ballot, please inform a member of the election committee no later than February 5, 2024.
- Ballots must be returned by February 12, 2024.
- Election results will be announced on February 15, 2024
