Approval of Member in Good Standing application
Once your account has been activated and your Member in Good Standing Application has been received, names of the applicants are made available at the first regular membership meeting after the application for membership has been submitted. If there are no objections raised by the membership, the applicants are accepted as members in good standing. If an objection is raised, the reasons for the objection must be placed in front of the membership. The membership will then vote on admission of the applicant. If a majority of the members present vote to accept the application, then the applicant will be accepted as a member (B.8.2 CUPE National Constitution).
After Approval, the membership officer will be mailing you a CUPE pink card for your wallet (preview below).
