CMG election information for CBC freelancers

The Canadian Media Guild Freelance Branch is reminding any freelancer who has completed any freelance contract since January 1st, 2019 for CBC/Radio Canada that you are eligible to sign a membership card in CMG and vote and/or run in the upcoming CMG union-wide elections.

Your contract must be either a: freelance specific services, freelance contributor, or technical freelancer contract with CBC. The amount of the contract doesn’t matter, you have already paid 1.55% of your pay to CMG in union dues, but you must sign a membership card in order to be eligible to vote or run in the election. You can do that easily online at this link.

At the dropdown menu for ‘Employer’, select ‘Freelance – CBC/Radio-Canada. You will then be sent a membership number you can use in our electronic voting system.

We are seeking CBC-Freelance candidates for President, Vice-President, and Secretary-Treasurer. Nominations are now open, and close at 5pm ET on Friday, November 8th. Online voting takes place December 5th to 9th.

For more information on the election, go to this link.
