GSU’s executive committee will be meeting with general secretary Hugh Wagner in Regina next week. GSU’s president Jim Brown (Local 1 – Viterra) and two vice-presidents Michelle Houlden (Local 5 – Western Producer) and Brett North (Local 1 – Viterra) constitute the executive committee of the GSU.
One of the executive committee duties is to oversee the business of GSU and formulate policy between meetings of the Joint Executive Council. The executive committee is entitled to exercise the authority of the Joint Executive Council between meetings of the Council and such actions are carried out on an interim basis until they are confirmed at the Council’s next meeting.
Dates for the autumn meeting of the Joint Executive Council will be discussed on Sept. 18.
