YEU Standing Committees; we need YOU!
Yukon Employees’ Union is governed by Bylaws created and modified by its membership. The elected Executive meets monthly and reports on the work they do as committee chairs, Local liaisons and Directors. Each Executive member is tasked with convening a committee to oversee certain areas of union business; the committees are made up of members interested in donating a few hours a month to their Union.
Building Committee: To monitor, protect and preserve the YEU Building by advising Executive on technical maintenance issues, renovations, etc. Oversees maintenance contracts and acts as liaison with tenants. Committee members might be called upon to meet with YEU staff occasionally to discuss building functionality etc.
Education Committee: Oversees the provision of education opportunities to YEU members, enhancing our ability to be effective and responsive to membership needs. Meets on an occasional basis to review education applications and assist in the development of training plans for the Union.
Equity Committee: Chaired by a member of the YEU Executive, this committee invites 2-6 members interested in issues of human rights and equity. The goal of this group is to promote and assist in union action around human rights issues & to appoint the PSAC EO Committee member.
Public Relations Committee: Actively promotes union ideals throughout the Yukon. Considers donation requests, administers hardship fund and is responsible for YEU Educational Bursaries.
All these committees, through their Chair, report regularly to the Executive at monthly meetings. If you are interested in participating as a member of any of these committees please email firstname.lastname@example.org
