Election Update, How to Vote if You’re Out of Office, and Status of Ongoing ULP Complaints

Re: Election Update:

The launch of our first election is imminent. Nominations closed on October 3rd and the Chief Electoral Officer continues to notify candidates whether they were confirmed and verified or not. Each candidates’ campaign material is being translated and uploaded to our website so you can review their background and key considerations. Campaigning will begin Friday October 11 and voting on Friday October 25.

Eligible voters will be able to cast ballots for all National positions (President and 3 Vice Presidents) as well as vote for your choice of candidates for regional positions in your specific Division.

Given the significance of this historic election, we hope you’ll take the time to read your national and regional candidates’ campaign materials later this week.

How to Vote if you’re Out of Office:

We wanted to remind you that if you are out of the office for an extended period (AOL, LWOP, ODS etc) please self-identify by emailing us at support@npf-fpn.com  before October 10, 2019 in order to receive a ballot at your personal email address. We ask that you provide: your full name, work email address, personal email address, HRMIS# and posting. It’s important that everyone have an opportunity to vote for your representatives.

Ongoing Unfair Labour Practice Complaints:

We continue to work on resolving outstanding and ongoing Unfair Labour Practice Complaints. Certification of the NPF as a bargaining agent has no effect on these ongoing ULP’s. The NPF are still pursuing four ongoing complaints on behalf of members (we have won four):

  • Whistler Parking – hearing has been rescheduled for February 2020;
  • SDP/MDP training requirement policy – awaiting a decision;
  • Island District HQ (Victoria) Parking – preliminary discovery phase;
  • Depot facilitator (Applied Police Sciences) civilianization of positions – preliminary phases.

As these ULP’s progress we will update you.
