Local 4092 Vice President’s Election
Due to the renovations and the set up of the communication centre in YYZ, placing election material in Company mail folders can be challenging. To address this issue, a new by law was proposed a the local membership meeting on May 17, 2018 to allow the local to use our extensive email list to send everyone’s information to all the members. The motion, which was duly approved and seconded, is as follows:

Candidates running for local election may send a one (1) page in Adobe PDF format of their resumes with election material to the Local President a minimum of 10 days prior to the opening of the voting, to be sent out as an email to all the members subscribed to the local’s email lists and to be posted on the local website. Changes to the material will not be permitted nor will any material submitted late be accepted. The email will be sent once to the entire email list and the documents will remain on the local website until the close of voting.

All candidates were contacted by the President and sent in resumes / election info. See below. There are 9 candidates for 8 positions of Vice President.

Michelle Duhaney
Kathryn Hoffman
Cynthia Kryszak
Da Hyen (David) Lee
Alison MacDonald
Sal Occhiuzzi
