Members at all stages of their careers have made major contributions through committee work. We have committees that are concerned with internal union matters and we have committees working on service to colleagues’ professional development and rights.
We have a political committee, called Political Action Public Response (PAPR) which steers the STA’s work during provincial and municipal elections and prepares campaigns during bargaining time. We are also inspired to work in various social justice areas, and have committees that do work in these areas both within the union and in response to how these are concerns in the community. These committees often organize special events for members, students, and the community.
