The question was called on the motion as amended:
Whereas OPSEU is a member-driven union; and

Whereas OPSEU’s constitution and policy support the electoral principle in selecting members for leadership roles within OPSEU and as delegates to the central labour bodies to which OPSEU is formally affiliated (i.e., CLC (Canadian Labour Congress, NUPGE (National Union of Public and General Employees), and OFL (Ontario Federation of Labour)); and

Whereas OPSEU policy specifies that the following elected representatives will be delegates to these central labour conventions: members of the Executive Board, Aboriginal Circle, Francophone Committee, Provincial Human Rights Committee, Provincial Women’s Committee, Provincial Young Workers Committee and the Regional Chairs of the Retiree’s Division; and

Whereas OPSEU policy also specifies that each region shall elect delegates to these central labour conventions at OPSEU’s Regional Meetings, including: 10 delegates per region to attend the CLC convention, 6 delegates to the NUPGE convention, and 14 delegates to the OFL convention; and

Whereas OPSEU’s policy and practice is to elect a matching number of alternates from each region for each of these conventions, at the Regional Meetings; and

Whereas scheduling conflicts – such as the scheduling of the 2014 OPSEU and CLC conventions on the same dates – may occasionally mean that there are not enough alternates available to ensure that the full complement of OPSEU’s regional delegates are able to attend these conventions; and

Whereas in some cases, OPSEU may also occasionally have the option to send additional delegates to these conventions;

Therefore be it resolved that OPSEU continues to support the electoral principle in the selection of delegates to the conventions of central labour bodies to which OPSEU is affiliated and entitled to send delegates; and

Be it further resolved that OPSEU will increase the number of alternates to these conventions elected at each Regional Meeting to the two (2) times the number of delegates elected from each region, to increase the pool of alternatives who may be called on to attend in the place of an elected delegate from the same region who is unable to attend; and

Be it further resolved that should OPSEU choose to send additional delegates to these conventions, over and above the number set out in policy, then ALL such delegates will be drawn from the lists of alternates elected from each region, with an equal number of additional delegates allocated to each region.
