Join a Guild committee at CBC

Get involved at the Guild at CBC by joining one of the three committees below. Much of the work happens by conference call; in some cases there are in-person meetings, usually in Toronto. Committee members get paid time off from work to attend joint meetings with management and travel costs for members outside Toronto are covered.

Transmission health and safety committee: a multi union-management joint committee provided for under the Canada Labour Code that helps the national and local health and safety committees to address issues specific to the Transmission workplace, including working at heights, high voltages, radio frequency radiation, all-terrain vehicles, and isolated locations.  We are looking for one member from the west or Ontario.

Communications committee: a Guild committee that will develop and implement a strategy to improve union communications for Guild members at CBC across the country. We are looking for several members.

Guild bylaws and policy: a Guild committee responsible for the review and upkeep of the Branch bylaws and ensuring that they conform to the CMG and CWA-SCA Canada bylaws and constitutions. This committee’s busiest time is the few months before and after the biennial convention. As well, one or more committee members will be required to attend the convention in 2014 to present the committee report. Overall, although this committee’s work is important, workload is fairly light.

The Guild executive at CBC will make the final selection of members of each committee. The selection process will be done in accordance with the CBC Branch Policy on Committees.

Please submit a separate email for each committee you would like to join to cbcbec@cmg.ca with the name of the committee in the subject line, and include:

–       Your name and work location
–       A sentence or two on why you are interested in joining the committee
–       Your relevant experience
–       The order of preference of the committees (if you apply to more than one).

The deadline for applications is 5 pm ET on Thursday, September 20. If you are not selected for a committee at this time, your application will be kept on file for future vacancies and sub-committee work. Your union needs you! Thanks to all who participate in Guild committees.
