Rules for agenda and discussion items as outlined by our bylaws:
- Senators or other staff association members wishing to formally submit an item for consideration on the agenda of a senate or staff association meeting should contact a member of the executive committee at least two weeks before the scheduled meeting. Inclusion of such items on the agenda will be at the discretion of the executive committee.
- Staff Senate and Staff Association agenda and open-discussion items shall be limited to items which are of a group nature, rather than issues of individual interest and concern. For individual matters, staff should contact the Office of Human Resources and/or a Union Representative.
- Matters primarily related to the wages, hours and working conditions of any unit on campus represented by a duly elected collective bargaining organization should be deferred to that organization. The staff senate shall only advise in those circumstances.
