Locals in the General Service of the Alberta Government are made up of a large number of workers in a "community of interest." For example, all members of Local 002 are considered administrative or related to program services. They are grouped into five categories (streams):
- Program Services
Locals represent a large number of employees doing similar work at different job sites. The largest locals are divided into chapters, to represent members geographically.
Each local and chapter has a democratically elected executive. Local 002's Council members are elected every two years at each Chapter's Annual General Meeting. At a minimum, Council meets four times per year. These meetings are usually held on Saturdays in Edmonton.
