To all FSA members:
The Faculty and Staff Association needs both faculty and staff stewards to fill vacant positions. The role of the stewards in the FSA is an important one. We are grateful to the stewards who have served the FSA and their colleagues in the past; their work has been invaluable.
Stewards serve as contacts for union members who have questions or concerns regarding their rights and responsibilities under the Collective Agreement. They work closely with contract administrators to make certain that issues are brought forward appropriately. Stewards are elected for one year, with the option to renew for a second year. Stewards do not hold an executive office but may attend executive meetings with a voice, but no vote.
Attached to this bulletin is a two-sided nomination form which includes an outline of the role and compensation for stewards. It is also available on the FSA website here. Nominate a member of your choice using this form and return it to the FSA office in Abbotsford (Room B377) no later than 4 pm, Wednesday, October 17, 2018. If necessary, elections will be held by electronic vote.
This is an excellent way for you to become involved, to learn more about the Collective Agreement, and to receive training which will be valuable to you in other roles at UFV.
