Council Representative Information
Roles and Responsibilities Tools

Council Reps are member-elected delegates who work to form union policy and act as union representatives in the workplace. CRs are a vital link between the employees they represent and the employer.

CRs have a number of responsibilities, but most important is to ensure that every SPEEA-represented employee receives union representation whenever necessary.

The Council Representative's role is comprised of eight key responsibilities:

• Contract monitoring and enforcement
• Discipline and performance issues
• Grievance handling/Investigations/Interviews
• Act as Council delegate to formulate policy for SPEEA
• Participation in partnership forums
• Keeping members informed
• Membership support
• Recruitment

Organizing Your District 

Organizing a communications network in the district is essential for Council Reps. Recruiting and using Area Representatives to assist in this work, the CR is responsible for keeping members informed with emails, workplace meetings and regular face-to-face communications.
