Nominations for Delegates to the 40th IBEW International Convention slated to be held May 9 - 13, 2022 in Chicago, Illinois will be accepted November 1, 2021 to November 19, 2021. Nominations are required to be received by Local 258 no later than 16:00 on Friday, November 19, 2021.

You may nominate yourself or someone else via:

Email: directly to info@ibew258.bc.ca, please include Convention Delegate Nomination in the subject line.

Website: members must log-in and click on the link in the pop-up window to access the direct email link.

By phoning the Union Hall at 604-520-3305.

As official Unit Meetings cannot be held this year due to COVID-19, nominations will be taken as above, and via Microsoft Teams Meetings as follows:

Units 1 & 2      Monday, November 15, 2021- 7:00 pm Pacific Standard Time

Unit 3              Tuesday, November 16, 2021- 7:00 pm Pacific Standard Time

Local Union 258 is entitled to a total of 10 delegates. By virtue of their elected positions as per our Local Union Bylaws, the Business Manager and the President are automatic Delegates. This leaves a total of eight Delegates to be elected from the membership. In accordance with the provisions of the Local Union By-Laws, there will be one Delegate elected from each of our six Local Union Units, and two Delegates elected at large. Members not elected but second in the number of votes to each Delegate will be alternates in the event an elected Delegate is not able to attend.

To be eligible to stand for nomination as a candidate, either as a Unit Delegate or as an At-Large Delegate, a member must have been in continuous good standing for two years prior to the nomination date.

During nominations, any potential candidate must be nominated clearly either for "Unit Delegate" or "At-Large Delegate" - no one may run for both positions.

Once the Union Hall is in receipt of the nomination, an email will be sent to the nominee by the Election Judge requesting confirmation of acceptance.

Following the nominations, ballots and voting instructions will be sent out by December 8, 2021 and counted on January 17, 2022. No ballots received in the official depository after 1:00 pm on January 17, 2022 shall be counted.

Candidates may supply the Election Judge with a biography of their union activities to be included on the ballot if they choose to do so. The biography must be in the union office one week after the meeting in which they are nominated.

An example of a biography:
