GENERAL ASSEMBLY

General Assemblies allow members to elect union officers, vote on union finances, approve bargaining mandates, and generally have their say in union affairs. In a normal academic year, CUPE 2626 organizes two General Assemblies: The Regular General Assembly (RGA) in the Fall semester, and the Annual General Assembly (AGA) in the Winter Semester. When necessary, Special General Assemblies (SGA) may also be called.
