Call for Nominations and Election Process
Take the lead to continue to improve jobs and student services at TAS. This is an opportunity to make your voice heard on our next contract and in addressing worksite issues.
Join the Bargaining Team & Labor Management Committee (LMC)
The bargaining team and labor management committee reviews input from members, develops contract proposals and negotiates directly with the employer. Members on this team also meet regularly with TAS administrators to find solutions to worksite problems, improve working conditions, and improve the student services we provide. Members of the team receive training, receive union leave from work, and are paid their regular wages during times when they must miss work in order to participate in Labor Management Committee meetings or contract negotiations.
The Bargaining Team and Labor Management Committee is made-up of members from each of the following categories and one alternate:
- Food Services – 1 seat + 1 alternate
- Custodial – 1 seat + 1 alternate
- Classroom Support – 1 seat + 1 alternate
Nomination Process for Bargaining Team & Labor Management Committee
To be nominated for a seat on the Bargaining Team and Labor Management Committee, any member in good standing must submit a Nomination Form, signed by at least 25 SEIU Local 99 members in their job classification category or 25% of members in their job classification category, whichever is smaller.
The deadline to submit the completed Nomination Form is Monday, October 16, 2023 at 5pm.
