UNW Regions and RVPs

A group of Locals within a geographic, political, or economic area makes up a Region.  There are seven regions in the UNW.  

Each Region has an elected Regional Vice President chosen by the Region's members. Their term of office is three years. 

Regional Vice President election results are announced at the UNW Triennial Convention which is held every third year. Regional Vice Presidents are the political representatives in the Regions and sit on the  UNW Executive.
