Internal Relations Committee


The prime purpose of the Committee is to promote understanding between and among University groups; to improve relationships; and, by hearing needs and acting appropriately, to provide a continually improving workplace environment. Management also sees this Committee as an avenue for bringing forth relevant information to faculty and staff groups, e.g. Long Range Planning, EAP, Deferred Leaves, etc. The Committee will not be used for the purpose of resolving collective agreement disputes or negotiations.

Meeting Dates
