SEIU-West takes great pride in our reputation as strong leaders within the labour movement. Our concerted effort to lead the way is characterized by strategic planning informed by solid research as we map our path of progress.
To that end, we are looking for the dedicated input of two front line rank and file SEIU-West members to take part in our new SEIU-West Futures Committee.
These members will be part of a 10 person SEIU-West team that will work as an advisory to our local executive and with our sister Canadian Local Futures Committees to plot our direction for the next several years.
This committee will look at the megatrends (such as demographics, technology, global economy and climate change) we face as a labour movement so that we can identify, and analyze potential threats and opportunities. Our goal is to create a plan so that we can be proactive rather than reactive.
Though we still have to finalize our terms of reference, we anticipate that the members chosen would have to commit to approximately four meetings per year, reading and reflecting on information provided to committee members, and actively participating in the work of the committee.
A great deal of research and effort have already gone in to the development of this work on a national and international level and we are excited about our potential work and its value to our future success within our Local Union.
If you are interested in applying for one of the two front line member positions, please submit your Expression of Interest by February 19, 2018.
Thanks for your consideration and engagement!
