As most of our members are aware, we are having a by-election for the remainder of this term which will be until December 31, 2017. All members will have the opportunity to vote at 2 locations. The first will be at the Emo Inn, for our members working at the New Gold site, and any other members in that area. The walk in voting times for that location will be from 2PM – 9PM on Saturday December 3rd. On Sunday December 4th walk in voting will also be held at the Union Hall from 3PM – 7PM.
