At the 2014 HEU biennial convention, delegates voted to combine the five Provincial Executive Occupational subcommittees - Clerical, Patient Care, Partient Care Technical, Support, and Trades and Maintenance - into one Occupational subcommittee.
The mandate of the new 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.
Please note: Information on other Provincial Executive subcommittees will be sent out in March 2015 following the Provincial Executive strategic planning.
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 will be 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.
Local activists who wish to be considered for this subcommittee must fill out the application form and submit it to the attention of Barb Gergely no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 12, 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.
