Committees

Mobilization Committee

The Mobilization Committee is a chance for members to get directly involved in member-oriented parts of the union! A union is only as strong as it’s least informed member and the Mobilization Committee is committed to reaching out to individual members to empower them in the workplace. The Committee also works on campaigns, events, and other projects that are informative and build community within the union, especially during Collective Agreement bargaining. To get involved with the Mobilization Committee, and for info on the next meeting, please contact our VP Communications and Outreach at communications.amuse@gmail.com.

Bargaining Research Committee

Not currently active

The Bargaining Research Committee works during period where we are not in negotiations with the university to keep track of issues that have arisen with the current Collective Agreement, engage with members who are experiencing negative side effects from the agreement, and research the issues that are important to members with the goal of improving working conditions now and preparing for future bargaining. For more information on the Bargaining Research Committee please contact the Labour Relations Officer at labour.amuse@gmail.com.

Health & Safety Committee

Health and Safety Committee is a joint committee composed of members from AMUSE and MUNACA, representing the interests of all of our members whether you are working in a lab, an office, as a tour guide, or as a sports referee! With so many members in different working conditions, it is imperative that we represent all of our health & safety needs with vigour! Out joint Committee with MUNACA also allows us to consider the ramifications to both casual and permanent employees in their shared workplaces. Members of the Health & Safety Committee also sit on the University Health and Safety Committee, a university-wide meeting with representatives from McGill. Get in touch with pres.amuse@gmail.com if you’re interested in being part of the Health & Safety Committee!

Solidarity Committee

In the summer 2015, it merged with MUNACA’s Social Justice Committee to create the “Solidarity Committee”, that meets monthly to organize social justice and solidarity-themed events in collaboration with other Montreal-based organizations. If you are interested in participating in this committee please contact the VP Internal at internal.amuse@gmail.com.

Financial Auditing Committee

The Finance Committee meets about once a month to go over the budget and review funding requests! Finance Committee is responsible for ensuring that AMUSE’s finances are addressed and they are responsible for voting on changes to the budget throughout the year. It meets to review the budget and handle discretionary funding. Please contact the Treasurer at treasury.amuse@gmail.com for more information.
