The FFAW-Unifor Elections Committee and a representative from the auditing firm Quinlan Taylor met this morning to conduct the counting of ballots for the FFAW-Unifor Executive Board election.
Two seats were contested in the election.
Doretta Strickland from Triton was elected as Vice-President, Industrial/Retail/Offshore Division. Doretta is the first woman to be elected to a Vice President position. Kevin Hardy of Burnt Islands was elected to the Inshore position of the West and South Coasts.
All other positions to the Board, including the top seats of President and Secretary-Treasurer, were elected by acclamation.
The new Executive Board will be installed at the Union’s triennial convention in early November.
