2017-2018 PSAC555 Committees
In this 2017-2018 budget, we have budgeted for five committees. Each committee has $500.00 to run their committee and for committee expenses.
As of December 2018, the following committees have been formed.
PSAC555 International Member’s Committee
This committee was formed to provide a PSAC555 orientation to our PSAC555 members. To let our members know about their collective bargaining agreement, what services the Union provides, and advise the members of current bargaining unit issues that may be affecting them. They had a members orientation meeting on November 3rd and will be scheduling another in the new year.
PSAC555 Policy Committee
This committee was formed to develop policies for the new PSAC555 Hardship Fund, the PSAC555 Scholarship, and the Professional Development Contest. Their main objective is to provide our members with clear transparent policies on these funds and how to access them.
PSAC555 Educational Committee
This committee was formed to investigate educational opportunities for our membership and schedule these opportunities on campus and off campus. So far we have had one educational on “How to be an executive officer and How to process membership grievances”. This education was provided off campus in October 2017. During the Durham College strike, no educational training could be scheduled on Campus, because our PSAC trainers could not cross the picket lines. This committee will be scheduling more educational for our membership in the new year. This committee is looking for new committee members.
NEW PSAC555 Committees
There is still an opportunity to create two more committees. If you as members would like to form a committee to enhance your worker experience at PSAC555, please let your PSAC555 executive know. Please email us any proposals at Office@PSAC555.ca.
