Trustees – Three Members

The role of the Trustees is to act as an auditing committee on behalf of the members. The books and accounts of the local and executive board are examined at least once a year, and a written report is prepared for the members. Trustees also ensure that monies are not unlawfully spent, and the concerns are made aware to the executive board.

 

Stewards Council – Multiple Members

Stewards are representatives of the local for each department in the University and are charged with the role of recruiting and organizing members in their departments. They serve as a liaison between the members from their departments and the executive committee, and advise members on matters involving the collective agreement and grievances. Stewards report to the Chief Steward and sit on the Stewards Council.

 

Membership Services Committee – Two Members
