Council of Representatives

The Council of Representatives is the body that represents you as a member and liaises with the Executive on your behalf. Each building has a Local Council Representative and these representatives meet monthly with the Executive to discuss issues and share information. Your Local Council Representative is your first point of contact for anything union-related. They will help you bring any concerns or issues you are having forward, and they will share information they get from meetings.

Duties of a Local Council Representative

  • Attend monthly meetings (1st Thursday of the month at Noon)
  • Communicate regularly with members in your coverage area
  • Pass on information from Council meetings to members in your coverage area
  • Bring concerns from members in your coverage area to Council meetings
  • Vote on motions in Council meetings on behalf of the members in your coverage area
