Committees

Mobilization Committee

The Mobilization Committee is a chance for members to get directly involved in some of the biggest projects of the union! A union is only as strong as it’s least informed member, so it is very important for us to do our best to reach out to each individual member and empower them in the workplace. The Committee works on campaigns, events, and other projects that are informative and build community within the union.To get involved with the Mobilization Committee, and for info on the next meeting, please contact our VP 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.

Equity 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.
