The Union has two positions available on the bargaining team.
- Team member will full voting power
- Understudy to serve should one of the team members become unavailable
In either position you will be exposed to
- writing and applying contractual language
- negotiating on behalf of your union members
- the bargaining process
- working on a team with varying opinions
As a new member, you will not be expected to take a lead in any of the process. We will teach you what the process is and respect your opinion. You will be expected to:
- think on behalf of all members and not just your own interests
- hold a strict confidence
- understand and follow bargaining table rules
- follow through on assignments
- be on time to meetings
The earliest we would begin is late fall 2016. Our contract expires Oct 1, 2017.
Interested members in good standing should contact bargaining chair Coreen Bedford at email@example.com.
All members make sure you are inputting your workshops into the PSS Development website for credit. The website can be found by going to https://www.gvsu.edu/pssdev/index.htm. The deadline for inputting your workshops for credit is October 1.
