What Standing Committees Do?
An effective standing committee is a motivated, energetic and innovative group of members who can apply their abilities to their areas of interest. Standing committees work in cooperation with their local union executive board. They identify topics ,programs and issues that are important to the membership, the community, the local union, the international union and labor movement as a whole. They develop plans and proposals for activities and , when approved by the local union executive board, carry out those plans. Standing committees report out at membership meetings on the progress of their activities and future plans

Thank you to all the members who voted,
As a result of the Fact Finder’s decision in May 2015 effective on or about March 20, 2016 the dental insurance premium 20 % co-share cost will begin. This means that the members will pay 20% of the cost of the dental insurance premium. The figures below are the total cost, the university’s share and our share.
We are responsible for the Employee Biweekly Cost.
The figures for this change are as follows:
