    Updated On: Sep 28, 2022

    Local 636 Structure

    • Presently, Local 636 represents approximately three thousand five hundred (3500) members.

    • Members work in both the public and private sectors in such industries as: Utilities, Alarm & Signal, Electrical Manufacturing, Public Works, Community Health Care and Hospitals.

    • Local 636 operates under a Unit Structure which means that, within our Local Union we have some fifty (50) separate Units across the Province - each of which has a degree of autonomy that allows them to deal with specific workplace concerns.

    • As the recognized bargaining agent for the many workplaces within these Units, our Local is also responsible for the negotiation and enforcement of eighty (80) individual collective agreements.

    • Responsibility for the day-to-day business and operation of our Local rests with the Business Manager/Financial Secretary whose office is located in Oshawa.

    • In addition, five (5) full time Business Representatives - each of whom is responsible for administering the collective agreements in their respective geographic districts - work under the direction of the Business Manager.

    • With members scattered from Ottawa to Windsor; Niagara Falls to Barrie and all parts between, it was essential for our Local to establish and maintain a strong communications link with our Units. To this end, the unique partnership between our Provincial Executive Board and the Units was developed. This system has proven to operate extremely well.

    • Our President, Vice-President, Recording Secretary, Treasurer and Business Manager/Financial Secretary are elected by the membership at large through secret mail-in-ballot.

      • As prescribed by the I.B.E.W. Constitution and the Local 636 Bylaws, these elections are held every four (4) years. 

    • the Province has been divided into a number of geographic service areas or Regions.

    • Each of these Regions has a seat on the Provincial Executive Board and the members in each area elect their representative by secret mail-in-ballot.

      • As prescribed by the I.B.E.W. Constitution and the Local 636 Bylaws, these elections are held every four (4) years. 

    • Within each of the Regions, there are individual Units - the size and number of which vary by Region.

    • Each of these Units meets on a regular basis with the schedule set by the members and their Business Representative.

    • The members of each Unit elect - by secret ballot at their Unit meetings: a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Recorder and four (4) Executive Committee members.

    • Working together with the Business Representative, this leadership team is responsible for dealing with the issues and concerns of that particular Unit. For the majority of our members, these representatives (along with their Stewards) are the ones most often called upon for assistance and support.
