Members Approve Fall By-elections and Special Election Provisions for CAS:T
September 30, 2016
According to Article 11 of the AASUA Bylaws, the bylaws of the Association may be amended by a resolution passed by a majority of not less than two thirds (2/3) of the members who vote on the resolution.
This week, the AASUA membership has voted to approve Bylaw amendments designed to permit the Association to fill in Fall by-elections any seat on AASUA Council not filled during the spring general elections, as well as any unfilled Director position on the Association's Executive Committee. These amendments include provisions that enable members of the Contract Academic Staff: Teaching (CAS:T) who had been elected to a seat on Council in the spring, but were not on contract in the spring or summer, to return to their seat on Council without standing for re-election in the Fall by-elections. See the previous notice here. For more details of the voting result, go here.
