The Mobilization Committee looks for ways to involve the membership in the functioning of the local. We do this by fostering an activist spirit among members, organizing events, pickets, participation in solidarity rallies, creating outreach materials, running campaigns, and doing campus outreach. During bargaining years this committee gets particularly active, as ensuring mass participation by the membership is crucial to the bargaining process.
External Affairs Committee
This committee is chaired by the VP external of our executive. it's main goal is to reach out to other unions and organizations beyond the local in order to build solidarity.
Human Rights Committee
This committee is tasked with assisting and advising the local on issues related to human rights, equity, solidarity, and anti-oppression.
Health and Safety Committee
They work to improve the health and personal safety of CUPE 4600 members by improving the awareness of health and personal safety problems faced by members of the Local. They collaborate with the Human Rights Committee, the Women’s Caucus, and the International Members Caucus to mobilize the membership of CUPE 4600 to confront violence and intimidation on campus, especially gender-related violence, as well as racist and homophobic violence and intimidation, and conducting campaigns on health and personal safety issues
This committee gets into the nitty-gritty of the local's bylaws, by reviewing the bylaws, making recommendations to the executive and general membership, and reviewing proposed bylaw changes.
More exciting than it sounds! This committee helps prepare the annual budget presented to the membership at the AGM, monitor the local's expenses, and help administer the strike fund.
Bargaining Research Committees (Unit 1 & 2)
Working very closely with the Bargaining Team, the Bargaining Research Committees will not only do the research to back-up the demands of the bargaining team, but also work with the membership year round to inform the priorities of upcoming bargaining rounds.
This Committee will work on finding ways to make our union more equitable, accessible, and welcoming. Meetings are open to any member of either units. It is chaired by the local's Equity Trustee.
Lots of the local's work happens through committees. Because our local has so many members, and meeting agendas can get quite packed, we use committees to work on specific concerns, do bargaining related research, mobilize the membership, and support the work of the executive. The committees are open to all members, and we welcome participation. to get involved in a committee you can email the committee's chair (listed below) or contact the mobilization coordinator at
