On May 26, 2021, SEIU-West brothers and sisters will gather online for our first ever virtual Convention!

This Convention will be like no other – but as you know SEIU-West union members are like no other union members and this past year has only confirmed this.

Delegates to Convention will have the opportunity to reconnect, regroup, and recommit to doing your part to keep our province safe – click here to read more in our convention call.

Together we will showcase how we are ‘Stronger Together’ even when we’re at a safe physical distance!

Delegates to the Convention are selected from local units as follows:

  • The unit chair is the first delegate to the Convention. If the unit chair is a member of the SEIU-West executive board, or is unable to attend the Convention, the unit must nominate and elect another unit member as the first delegate.
  • In units with co-chairs, the unit must decide which one will attend as the first delegate.
  • Units that are entitled to more than one delegate must nominate and elect their additional delegates at a unit meeting.

Some Units have delegate spaces available. Click here to see which ones and find out more.
