Attention Camosun College Faculty Association Members, your Fall General Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 9, 2023, from 3:00 to 4:30 PM. Please check your Outlook Calendar to make sure you’ve received our invite and link. If you haven’t gotten an invite, please contact us. If you’ve never attended a CCFA General Meetings before, GMs are held virtually, run on time or conclude early. This is an important meeting for all Term AND Continuing Faculty members to attend! You’ll have a chance to learn of our 2022-2025 Collective Agreement Implementation progress, hear Executive Reports, take part in Budget Discussions, get Updates on CCFA Committee Membership, win Door Prizes, and provide feedback to your Union Executives on how your union is run! We can’t wait to see you there!
ALL MEMBERS should know that you HAVE THE RIGHT to attend, even if this meeting conflicts with your teaching schedule. Now, we know that not everyone is interested or willing to step away from teaching just to attend a Union meeting, but, if you want to all you have to do is politely inform your Dean or Director that you won’t be available to teach during the meeting.
Clause 23. Union Rights
This clause was written to you could make it to all of our likely meetings in a year! Counting our Special General Meeting to ratify the Collective Agreement in September, the Fall & Winter General Meetings, and our Annual General Meeting usually held in June you’d have just enough leave time to attend them ALL – if they were in conflict with your teaching schedule every time.
If you you’re a current CCFA Member and don’t have our invite already in your Outlook Calendar, please contact us. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you there. As a reminder to faculty, we do not record General Meetings. You must be present to vote on motions. Minutes of CCFA General Meetings are attached to the next GM invite the day of the meeting or can made available by personal request. Announcements for meetings, events, infosessions, workshops and other union news are available via “opt-in” subscription newsletters on our website and distributed via the Camosun College CCFA listserv Confluence Blog digest.
