UWSA 2021 AGM: Notice of Postponement

At the March 8, 2021 Board of Directors (“Board”) meeting, the Board approved a motion to postpone the 2021 UWSA Annual General Meeting from March 17 to April 1, 2021.

In January 2021, the Board voted to postpone the 2021 General Elections from February-March to March-April, 2021 in order to work on creating an anti-oppressive election framework. The by-laws of the UWSA mandate that the Annual General Meeting should take place before the first day of Spring. However, based upon the reasons noted above, the Board determined that this was not possible.

As a result of the motion approved by the Board to postpone the meeting until April 1, 2021, election results will not be announced to the UWSA membership before March 31, 2021.

In light of the reforms implemented this year, the Annual General Meeting has been rescheduled to ensure that the UWSA membership has the opportunity to ratify the election results and welcome the team for the 2021-22/23 election cycle.

Please email us at chair@theuwsa.ca if you have any questions or concerns regarding the postponement.
