To provide a forum whereby support staff may bring forward issues of concern which do not specifically relate to the formal administrative structure in their Area. The Council does not share in the role or functions of the Support Staff Union, but union or contract-related issues may be raised. An A.U.P.E. Steward attends all meetings as an ex-officio member.
Any work-related issue may be discussed by Council. Any support staff member may submit agenda items for possible discussion, either to the Area representative or to the Secretary of the Support Staff Council. Meetings are usually held in Areas prior to Council meetings in order to discuss the items of the agenda and survey opinions. Area meetings are usually held following Council meetings as well as to convey new information.
Elected every two years in June by each area of the Department of Libraries and Cultural Resources. Service from August 1 through July 31, every two years.
Each Area within the Department of Libraries and Cultural Resources selects one representative and an alternate. Areas having more than 20 voting members may elect two representatives and one alternate.
Agendas will be emailed to Support Staff Council members prior to the next meeting. Please send agenda items to the SSC Secretary one week prior to the meeting.
The name of this organization shall be the Department of Libraries and Cultural Resources Support Staff Council, more commonly referred to as Support Staff Council or SSC.
Term of office: August 1 through July 31 for 2-year period.
As SSC functions as an advisory council, ex-officio members attend SSC meetings to help promote the sharing of information and facilitation that will contribute to the successful operation of the Council and Department of Libraries and Cultural Resources. These individuals act as ongoing liaison between SSC and their respective units or councils. We ask that they act with the same discretion that is expected of voting members.
Term of office: varies according to individual committee voting timetable (1 or 2 year terms –usually elected or appointed in the September meeting).
