As many of you know we have been trying to get personal email addresses for future voting purposes. Unifor uses Simply Voting for all online voting. Many people have asked why we dont use MBLL email, the simple answer is the corporation does not what any of the unions to use their infrastructure for union business. Also, if any member is on any kind of leave their mbll email account is disabled and they would not receive the link to vote.
It is important that you provide an email address in order to participate. You can send an email to @email with your first and last name if you have not already done so.
