  • Regulations, for some of the Committees that are not yet listed as a Regulation. will be created for each of these committees based on their mandates and will become regulations in the CEIU Regulations Booklet. These Committees include the By-Laws Committee, the Finance Committee, the IRCC Advisory Committee, the IRB Advisory Committee and the National Call Centre Committee


  • The title of Regulation 2 will be changed to read: Regulation governing the nomination and election of CEIU delegates to the PSAC Convention/PSAC Conferences and will now contain information on the PSAC Conferences.


  • All delegates, which includes those from electoral districts and those from the HRRR Committee to the CEIU Convention will now be considered as potential members to sit on the Convention Resolutions Committee for their respective region. Prior to this, only the delegates from electoral districts could be selected to sit on Resolutions Committee.  This left the HRRR delegates not able to participate on any of the Resolutions Committee.   Contact your respective Regional NVP if you wish to be considered for one of the three (3) Convention Resolutions Committees.


  • A review, in the next three months, will be conducted by the By-Laws Committee of the most recent electronic NVP and A/NVP electoral process.
