Become an HSR

Becoming an HSR is a matter of a nomination and simple election process in your workplace. If there is more than one employee nomination for one position, an election needs to take place. If you are the only nominee, you will not need to go through an election process. ANMF (Vic Branch) is able to help you with this easy, five-step process:

1. Confirm your DWG with your employer and agree upon the number of HSRs.

2. Call for nominations and display the nomination in a prominent place. You can use this form.

3. Complete an HSR nomination form and submit it to a person who can oversee the election. (This may be an ANMF Job Representative.)

4. If there is more than one nominee, an election needs to take place. This may be as simple as a show of hands – you can choose your own election process.

5. Notify your facility and ANMF of the elected HSR.
