There was a collective bargaining presentation on UWOFA and UWOSA to inform everyone, you can check it out here.

The standing committees each breifly explained what happened at their first meeting.

There are six standing committes, each consisting of different USC divisions that are to be dealt with (as Emily mentioned in her last post).  At the next USC meeting, the motions from the standing committees will be brought up.  The six committees are: Agenda & Operations, Campus Issues, University Affairs, Finance, Student Life and Communications.

The new members of the USC as of this Fall needed to be placed on a standing committee, so this was done.  I chose to be on the Student Life committee, and am now officially a member!

Posted Motion # 1 was passed to include part-time students in the health plan!

There was also a motion #2 that wasn’t posted.  If the motion was passed it would involve having a couple members make an online survey asking students whether or not they want the strike to happen to aid the hault of the strike.  If the motion was not passed they would still be able to make the survey but it wouldn’t be mandatory, where as if it was passed the survery would have to be conducted.  This caused a long heated debate, and eventually did not get passed.

Shortly after the meeting was adjourned!

All for now,

Cailin
