Resolution:Election of Functional Reps - submitted by Stratford No 1 Branch

The following resolution submitted by Stratford No 1 Branch fell 9 votes to 4 at the October 27th Regional Council meeting.

This Region reaffirms its support for the policy of functional and tier two reps returning to the workplace after a three year term in office.
This Region also supports the ability of functional reps to stand down from the level 1 position if they so choose.
However this Region believes that it is unfair that candidates for functional council have to be local reps in order to be eligible.

We ask that the LTRC removes the prerequisite to be a local rep in order to stand for functional council.
