The Equity Advisory Work Group is a permanent advisory body to the Provincial Executive as well as the Equity Officer on reducing barriers to member participation and fostering equity and inclusion within OSSTF/FEESO.
The Provincial Executive is seeking two Members-at-Large to serve on this work group. Members will serve on a three-year term in these positions.
Interested applicants should submit a letter of application indicating their suitability for this position and outlining specifically their demonstrated experience working with equity issues either personally or with members of equity seeking groups. Applicants should identify the equity seeking group(s) of which they are a member.
The work group expects to meet approximately three to four times per year. While time release as well as travel costs for all meetings are paid by the provincial office, applicants should verify with their local president that there are no restrictions for time release for their Bargaining Unit.
OSSTF/FEESO values the participation of members with different voices from lived experiences. We recognize that the selection of candidates for federation positions from members of equity seeking groups is an asset. Self-identification of membership in equity seeking group(s) is voluntary. If you choose to self-identify, please let us know any that apply to you:
- Racialized Person
- FNMI (First Nations, Métis, Inuit)
- Person with a Disability
Letters of application should be submitted no later than 4:00 p.m. on May 31, 2019 to the attention of Jenny Chen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
