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.


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.


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

 * Numbers are based on the latest membership lists provided by the Employer and will be updated annually. Only regular members are counted towards the number of Stewards per academic department/unit. For the definition of "regular members," please see Article 2.1 in the YUFA Constitution.
