Stewards' Council

Article 4 of the YUFA Constitution establishes the Stewards' Council to direct the affairs of the Association between General Meetings. The Stewards' Council provides a forum for discussion of issues of concern to YUFA members and can direct the Executive Committee to take action thereon.

Its other roles include ratifying appointments, subcommittees, and Bylaw amendments; approving Primary Negotiating Positions before their ratification by the membership; reviewing the Executive Committee's work plans; and recommending Constitutional amendments to the membership. The Stewards' Council includes members of the Executive Committee, all elected Stewards, and one Representative from each Recognized Caucus.

Meetings

Stewards' Council meetings are generally held the first Friday of every month during the Fall and Winter semesters and are open to all YUFA members.

Stewards

The full list of Stewards and of Representatives from each Recognized Caucus is below. Contact information for each member of Stewards' Council is available at York Atlas.
