UEA House of Delegates

Tonight delegates from OEA and WEA will meet at the UniServ office to discuss the new business that will be brought to the UEA House of Delegates, April 25 at Alta H.S. Each year delegates from all over the state meet to discuss the business of the UEA. Each delegate will have voting power and the meetings are run by President Kim Campbell using parliamentary procedure. This year there are several proposed bills dealing with membership dues. They include the following topics:
  • Create a statewide retired group of members
  • Freeze UEA dues at the current level for one year (Ogden/Weber is the sponsor)
  • Freeze UEA dues at the current leverl for two years.
  • Require a 2/3 vote of the house to change dues.
  • Change dues structure for new teachers in first three years
  • Change the meeting procedures for the UEA Board
  • Combining Bargaining into the current Professional Rights and Responsibilities Committee
  • Change the nomination procedure.

We will discuss these issues and take positions tonight at our Pre-House meeting.
