Hello all, below is a list of the committees that the bylaws say are required. I have put the names of the exec or members that are Chairing the committees. When setting up the committees each should have no less than 3 members including the Chair. Please review and let me know if any corrections are required From our bylaws ARTICLE VII - COMMITTEES
1. The Union shall establish the following Standing Committees:
a) Stewards Council - Nancy
b) Grievance Appeals Committee - Nancy
c) Health and Safety Committee
d) Communications Committee
e) Good and Welfare Committee
f) Women's Advocate - Nancy
g) Organizing Committee - Dave Schinbein
h) By-Laws Committee - Bob Cossman
We have discussed increasing our presence in the community and as such would like to create a Youth Outreach Committee. Kevin has expressed an interest in this committee. The establishment of this committee will require a bylaw change.
John mentioned at our meeting about a finance and audit committee. I think there is merit in this committee. Perhaps John you could give some detail on the duties of this committee. Again a change in the by.laws would be needed.
The first task for all committees is to recruit members and then write the committees mission statement and mandate these are then added to the bylaws which will provide direction for future committee members.
