These guidelines were adopted by the elections committee on March 21, 2012 to ensure common ground rules for CMG elections.
In the conduct of their campaigns, candidates:
-may not use their Employer e-mail accounts to send campaign material or messages
-may not use the CMG logo in any campaign materials or copy the Guild’s graphic design in a manner that could lead anyone to think it is an official Guild document or website
-may not use any information (e.g., member e-mail lists) that they may have had access to in the course of other CMG work. This also applies to social media accounts that belong to CMG.
-must follow both the Guild code of conduct & collective agreement language regarding respect in the workplace, where applicable
-shall conduct their campaigning activities in the workplace in compliance with their collective agreements (e.g., union access to premises provisions)
-are responsible for the actions of anyone they recruit to help them with postering, campaigning etc.
-may not campaign at official Guild meetings, on memos, communiqués or messages. This also applies to social media accounts that belong to CMG.
