Report of the
President's Standing Committee
for Employment Equity
As stated above, despite a brief period of
inactivity, PSCEE has renewed its commitment to the work of employment
equity at Western. To assist in moving forward in 2001 in a positive
and meaningful manner, the Committee has several recommendations it
wishes to make.
This Committee believes it is time for Western as a whole to reaffirm its commitment to employment equity. To begin this process, it is our recommendation that the policy be updated and reaffirmed. We would recommend that the revisions contain a strong statement reaffirming the principles to which Western is committed and reflect the change in unionization and structure that has taken place over the past twelve years. We would recommend that the Committee's membership now be as follows:
One representative appointed by each of the following:
The Associate Vice-President (Human Resources)
It is our recommendation that each subcommittee be chaired by the President's appointee to PSCEE for that designated group. Each of the subcommittees would report to PSCEE, and would be given the mandate by PSCEE to review the status of employment equity efforts and results at Western as these pertain to their particular group. To accomplish this, each subcommittee should be asked in particular to analyze and review the six objectives set out in Western's Employment Equity Work Plan, as well as the census data. Subcommittees should also be examining hiring, promotion and training opportunities, as well as terminations. It is our recommendation that the subcommittees each prepare annual reports to be submitted to PSCEE, the first of which we recommend be submitted in January, 2002. Although this does not give the subcommittees a great deal of time, it would allow them to report the preliminary results of their work and to begin the process of revising the Employment Equity Work Plan.
