Board of Directors

NSGEU Board of Directors

Board of Directors login

The NSGEU Board of Directors is a group of 33 members who represent all occupations and provincial regions in which the union has members.

The Board meets almost every month, usually at the NSGEU office in Burnside. With significant input from individual locals via the Regional and Occupational Councils, the Board of Directors keeps its finger on the pulse of the entire union and makes all the union’s major decisions between Triennial Conventions.

For example, the Board of Directors is empowered to:

  • Set overall bargaining strategies;
  • Launch public-relations campaigns;
  • Set strategic direction and priorities (so long as they’re in-line with those set by Triennial Convention delegates);
  • Offer NSGEU solidarity, support, and/or financial assistance to other unions or social-justice organizations.

NSGEU Board of Directors include:

  • The five Provincial Executive Committee members elected by delegates during the NSGEU Triennial Convention;
  • Eight members elected from each of the eight NSGEU Regional Councils;
  • Twenty one members elected from each of the 14 NSGEU Occupational Councils. (Councils with more than 2,000 members get two seats on the board).
