What do Local Officials and Local Committee members do?
Please see attached an outline of the duties of the Local Secretary, President and Vice President. The Local Officials are responsible for building relationships to raise and resolve issues affecting the Local and notifying the National office of issues that are or may be national matters, or where support and assistance is needed.
It is important that the Local Officials are also supported with a Local Committee. Local Committee members attend and participate in Local meetings and, depending on the size of the Local, may be assigned a specific Local portfolio depending on skill set and interests, or represent the Union as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) in working parties and projects.
The National Union communicates with Local Officials primarily by phone and video conference to update and inform Locals of key issues and events, and to canvass the Local’s view on current issues and circumstances. The National Union also provides support as needed including representation for members with individual matters.
