Joint Committees gather representatives of the University of Ottawa and the APTPUO (and other unions, if applicable). These committees discuss issues that matter to Part-Time Profs. APTPUO Representatives, nominated by the Board of Directors, sit on these committees and report back to the Board. Any member sitting on a Joint Committee shall receive a seniority point (reference: section 5.8.1.e of the Collective Agreement).
Departemental Representatives help members, attend departmental meetings and report concerns and problems to the Board of Directors.
