The Executive Committee shall establish by appointment one ad hoc negotiating team to undertake any negotiations with the Board as may be anticipated in a given contract year, and as are governed by the collective agreement.
The Negotiating Team shall compile and recommend a mandate to the Executive Committee. The Negotiating Team shall negotiate all terms and conditions of employment. In making their appointments to this team, the Executive Committee
shall give close consideration to the skills and resources of the Bargaining Resource Committee to prospective team members.
The teams should consult with the Executive Committee and the Bargaining Resource Committee on strategies and progress, particularly when terms and conditions under negotiation are contractually related.
When matters pertaining to the particular ranks (i.e., Sessional Lecturers, Instructors/Academic Assistants, Professional Librarians, professoriate) are to be negotiated, and whenever practical circumstances permit, the Executive Committee may appoint one representative Member to serve as observer and/or resource person on the Association’s negotiating team.
