By now active and retired members should have received information packages regarding nominations for the Rio Tinto Alcan Pension Plan Committee. Included in these packages will be an election ballot in which to choose one of the listed candidates as your pension plan committee member (retired members will receive different ballot forms then our active members).
The Union Executive is now requesting our active membership vote for our Brother Bill Bovingdon and only him so as to increase his chances of getting elected. Bill is a long time member who works as a mechanic in the main garage. Should Bill be elected to the RTAPP Committee he will also become a member of the Joint Pension Committee.
We are requesting our retired members to vote for retired Brother Kirk Ives and only him so as to increase his chances of getting elected.
With your solid support we will once again elect our members to the RTAPP Committee.
The deadline for mailing in your ballots is June 12th. Members can also forward their ballots in the provided envelopes to the Union hall for mailing.
