As the COVID.19 pandemic continues to create havoc, all plans for 2021 could change. Any fluctuations will be posted here on the website.

2021 will be a busy year for both active and retired members of Local 88. Aside from the General Elections taking place, where retirees may vote for the Local 88 Executive Board, our own Unifor Local 88 Retiree Chapter elections will be happening a few months earlier, at the April 8 meeting.
All retirees are able to nominate and vote on every Retiree Executive Board position.

The schedule for the election of Retiree Chapter Officers is every three (3) years. Elections shall be in April 2021, (runoff in May, 2021 if needed), to take office in June 2021.

The Unifor Local 88 Retiree Executive Board positions are:

Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Recording Secretary, Financial Secretary
Sergeant-at-Arms, and 2 Trustees.

The duties of these officers, as prescribed by the Local Union and the Retired Workers Chapter in the By-Laws, are:
