Aside from three funded positions (President, Chief Steward, and Executive Assistant), our local is run by volunteers — members just like you who stepped up to help do the work. We always need people to help as stewards, and on committees, and often have specific positions to fill. Training is available unless otherwise specified.
We’ll have elections in May for new committees starting July 1st.
Here’s what’s open now (January 2019):
Joint Job Evaluation Committee (JJEC) member — ideally the person stepping into this role has been through the JE process in the last five years and has a good understanding of what is required of our members to complete the questionnaire. A knowledge of what CUPE 951 members do across campus is also helpful. While there is a steeper learning curve for this committee, the time required is minimal — generally one two hour meeting every two to three months plus time spent helping other members who are going through the process.
Trustee (until June 2019) — the three Trustees are responsible for auditing the financial records of the local each year, making suggestions for future budgets, and submitting a report to CUPE National. Trustees may attend Executive meetings and are expected to attend General Meetings. Trustees also meet for a few afternoons each year to go through the books.
Please see the Bylaws for full details on the duties and responsibilities of CUPE 951 officers (Section 14 ) and committee members (Section 18).
