Steward Election Oct 21 – ECE and Fashion

| October 7, 2016 | 0 Comments

Election: Up to three Local 560 stewards for Early Childhood Education and School of Fashion

Where: Newnham Campus, B3036
When: Friday, Oct. 21 at 11:00 A.M.

In a ten-minute meeting, we will elect up to three stewards from among the Full-Time and Partial-Load professors in the areas of ECE and School of Fashion. Each elected steward will represent both of those areas.
Stewards are at the heart of our Union. As members of the Local 560 Executive Committee, they represent the needs and concerns of the faculty in their area, and facilitate the flow of union information to faculty.

Participating in this meeting will ensure that faculty in your area have their voice heard by both the Union Executive and College management. Local 560 Chief Steward Frank Yee will be running the election and will be happy to stay to address any general questions or issues that you may have.

If you wish to run for steward, you do not need to bring a nominator. If you wish to run but are not able to attend, you can send a faculty member in the area in your absence, providing them with a letter in which you accept their nomination in absentia.
