The stipend amount is $360 per semester (or $90 per month), except for the Treasurer who receives $280 per month (or $1120 per semester).
Stipended Executive members must formally request their stipends and, at the end of the semester, must present a report of their activities to the Executive. The report should:
--> summarize completed tasks, duties, and projects, as well as any work not completed; --> identify both successful methods of carrying out duties and problems to watch out for; --> identify any union procedures or structures which make it difficult for the member to carry out assigned duties and, if possible, make recommendations for change
All non-SO Executive members may claim a prorated stipend for each month of their term. If a non-SO Executive member has attended an Executive meeting during the month, or has provided regrets to that meeting with an accompanying report summarizing completed tasks, duties, and projects, as well as any work not completed, then normally the stipend request for that month will be granted automatically.
Upon submission of an exit report and updated institutional memory document, and upon completion of training of the new Executive member, an outgoing non-SO Executive member may claim up to one month’s stipend for the month following the end of their term.
All stipends are granted according to the Stipend Policies in the TSSU By-Laws (www.tssu.ca/bylaws-policies/). Please allow up to two (2) weeks for processing and three (3) additional weeks for mailing. Your information is protected by privacy legislation.
