Application deadline extended for Trades and Maintenance Subcommittee

HEU’s Provincial Executive (P.E.) has extended the deadline for members to apply to serve on the Trades and Maintenance subcommittee due to a lack of applications.

The application deadline for all other PE subcommittees is now closed.

HEU’s subcommittees generally meet twice a year, though members of the committees will be expected to engage in activities related to their subcommittee’s work between meetings.

There are two P.E. members, and five members selected from the HEU membership, on each subcommittee. The subcommittees are co-chaired by a member of the Provincial Executive and by one of the subcommittee members drawn from the membership.

“This is an opportunity for members who are passionate about an issue to put that enthusiasm to work for their union and their fellow members,” says HEU secretary-business manager Judy Darcy.

Members can apply for the trades and maintenance subcommittee even if they have previously applied to sit on another committee. However, no member will be selected to sit on more than one subcommittee.

Members applying for this subcommittee must work in the Trades and Maintenance job family.

The committees will help implement convention decisions in their area of concern, help develop action plans, and reach out to members.

You can download an Expression of Interest form and Committee Descriptions or ask your local executive for copies.

You can also apply online.

Applications must be submitted to the Provincial Office by 5:00 p.m. on February 4, 2011.
