Executive Council

The Executive Council is the senior policy making body of our union. Executive Council members are responsible for policy issues, the annual budget, and all major financial decisions. There is one Executive Councillor for every 80-100 members. There is a minimum of five council meetings each year.

Councillors bring forward suggestions from job stewards and members on the ways the union can improve its policies and services to the members. These issues are debated at council meetings. Councillors also act as chief job stewards by recruiting and advising job stewards in their constituency.

Job Stewards

A Job Steward is a spokesperson for our union at your workplace and the first point of contact for a member when they have an issue at the workplace.
