Dan Michaluk elected as new Regional Rep for CAW Council 4000 Prairie Region - Local 4002

The second ballot run-off election was held on Saturday, June 27, 2009 between Chuck Barbour and Dan Michaluk, both who
garnered the majority of votes on the first ballot that was counted on May 9th.  Neither candidate received the required 50% plus
one vote to win on the first ballot.

Winning the election is Dan Michaluk, who is currently the Local Chairperson for the CN Agreement 5.1 membership in Winnipeg.  
Before being elected as Local Chair, Michaluk previously served as the President for CAW Local 4002 (Prairie Region).

Brother Michaluk will take over from the longest serving Regional Representative of Council 4000, Rick Doherty, beginning on July 2,
2009.  

Doherty announced earlier this year that he would be retiring after representing the Council’s Prairie Region and CAW Local 4002
membership at CN since the formation of Council 4000 and Local 4002 in November 1997.

We wish Brother Michaluk continued success as he ventures into his new role as Regional Representative for Local 4002 and CAW
National Council 4000.
