Local Committees

Our local committees, with the exception of the Membership, AGM and Education committees, mirror the National UTE committees.

You can start your involvement in the local by becoming an active member in a committee. The committees are always looking for people with skills that can and will assist. For example, one of the responsibilities of the Communications committee is this website and the committee can always use new ideas on layout and people with web design skills to help.

Check out the full list of Committees below and see where you could help out, today


Do you need help with an issue at the office?
Can't understand the collective agreement?

Then you should contact one of our stewards. They can help you to understand your rights under the collective agreement and deal with issues of harassment or discrimination at the workplace and much, much, more. You can also email us at help(at)bcute.org


Not sure if a Steward is what you need?
Want to know what is happening in the daily business of the Local?
Looking to bring a matter to the attention of the Executive?

Then feel free to contact any of the local executive to find out what is going on and available. There are also courses available that can educate you on how to interpret the Collective Agreement, Health and Safety and many other things.
