Provincial Executive subcommittees

Application for Provincial Executive subcommittees 

HEU members are invited to apply to participate in one of the five Provincial Executive (P.E.) subcommittees:

  • Environment
  • Global Justice and Peace
  • Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S)
  • Young Workers
  • Men

To focus the work of the P.E. subcommittees, and to support the strategic plan, the P.E. decided at the May P.E. meeting to strike fewer subcommittees than in the past.

Each subcommittee includes five rank and file HEU members, two P.E. members and a staff advisor. The basic mandate of each subcommittee is to advise the P.E. and make recommendations on issues related to the focus of their committee. 

Members can only serve on one committee so they should apply for the committee that most interests them and that enables them to bring their particular strengths and experience to the table.

Local activists who wish to be considered for a P.E. subcommittee must fill out the application form and submit it to the attention of Barb Gergely no later than noon. on Thursday, July 30, 2015 by fax 604-739-1510 or by mail to HEU Provincial Office, 5000 North Fraser Way, Burnaby, B.C.  V5J 5M3. This information should also be available from your local. 

The application form* is available in a number of different languages and members are welcome to complete it in their first language:

Provincial Executive Occupational subcommittee

At the 2014 HEU biennial convention, delegates voted to combine the five Provincial Executive Occupational subcommittees - Clerical, Patient Care, Patient Care Technical, Support, and Trades and Maintenance - into one Occupational subcommittee. 

The mandate of the Occupational subcommittee is:

  • To make recommendations to the Provincial Executive about ways to build solidarity and understanding between members of different Occupational Groups;
  • To identify issues of concern to particular Occupational Groups; and
  • To act as an advisory committee in preparation for Occupational Conferences.

The Provincial Executive Occupational subcommittee is composed of three Provincial Executive (P.E.) members and three members from each of five Occupational Groups: Clerical, Patient Care, Patient Care Technical, Support, and Trades and Maintenance. 

Each of the three members of the Occupational Group and the three P.E. members are from different sectors where possible: public sector, independent private sector, and contracted support sector.

Two of the P.E. members will act as co-chairs of the subcommittee.

The P.E. Occupational subcommittee may meet up to three times a year for two days. All expenses, including transportation, accommodation if needed, per diem, and wage replacement will be provided for members to attend these meetings.
