Members Needed - NEW UWOSA Training & Education Committee

Dear UWOSA member,

Last Thursday, at the Annual General Meeting, a change to Bylaw 5.2.3 added a new UWOSA standing Committee for Education and Training.

Communicating with members and sharing information served UWOSA well last fall during the collective bargaining process. One of our goals for this coming electoral year is to help develop the confidence and skills of UWOSA members through training opportunities. This will make us even stronger when we return to the negotiations table in 2013.

The duties of this committee are as follows:

• Meet at least quarterly and report to the Executive on a quarterly basis;
• Develop and propose procedures for expenditures of the Education and Training budget to the Executive;
• Investigate and propose programs and policies which will advance the educational and training needs and interests of the Association membership;
• Establish criteria and adjudicate applications from members for education and training opportunities;
• On an annual basis, present a report to the Annual General meeting.

If you would like to sit on this committee, please contact Mary Hay via email ( or at ext 85089.

In solidarity,
Deb Novakowski
