Open Call – Joint Committees

The WLUSA Executive is accepting applications to fill one (1) vacancy on the Joint Health & Safety Committee (JHSC) and one (1) vacancy on the Professional Development Fund Committee.

As a Member of the JHSC, you will discuss health and safety issues that impact the Waterloo and Kitchener Campuses of the University. Committee meetings will normally be one and a half hours in length and held monthly from September through June. Training is provided and you shall be granted release time to attend these meetings. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to learn more about identifying hazardous situations, participating in consultations with the University, and monitoring of health and safety testing.

The Professional Development Fund Committee is chaired by the WLUSA/OSSTF President (non-voting) and is responsible for reviewing and approving applications to the fund. This ensures fairness and equity in the application of the employee for professional development opportunities. As a member of this committee, you will be expected to meet with the Committee monthly, either in person or over e-mail, for approximately 1 hour per session to evaluate applications.

No previous experience required for either committee.

If you are interested, please send an email to wlusaadmin@wlu.ca by 4:30pm on Friday, November 13th, and include your name, job title and department, and a short blurb (5-6 sentences) outlining why you are interested in the committee and any skills you possess that would contribute to the success of this Committee.
