In addition, the Job Action Committee (JAC) is looking for volunteers to join its five working subcommittees, which will be active during the current bargaining year and conclude their work when the new collective agreement is ratified. As per the terms of reference for JAC, “this regulatory committee [is] tasked with fulfilling the logistical duties associated with conducting job action (such as lockout or strike) in compliance with ULFA’s Job Action Policy.” JAC’s five subcommittees have been struck and their respective co-Chairs just beginning their organizational work. But they could definitely use a helping hand! The subcommittees are:

  • Communications
  • Finance
  • Materials
  • Picket
  • Social

The committee will meet for 90-minute planning sessions once per month for the Fall term, and its various subcommittee Chairs would be pleased to welcome you to the team. Meeting schedules for the remainder of the Fall 2023 term are as follows:

  • Dec 4, 2023 10:00 to 11:30 am.

If assisting in the running of an effective job action, information pickets, rallies, and/or other ULFA-related events sounds appealing, and you imagine you’d enjoy working for the advancement of labour solidarity, please consider signing up for duty with JAC.
