One, 3-year term
The Judicial Council (JC) is a team of 18 volunteer BCTF members, trained and experienced in conducting tribunal-style proceedings. They also receive training in points of law, in particular the principles of natural justice and due process. The role of the JC is to consider alleged breaches of the Code of Ethics or conduct harmful to the Federation and render verdicts regarding said conduct. JC members are assigned to panels or teams to deal with complaints at various stages of the process. To protect privacy and confidentiality, Judicial Council members are assigned a BCTF email address to be used for all communications from Judicial Council. Judicial Council members are responsible for remaining up to date and regularly checking BCTF email communications.
Important: Applicants must be nominated by a secret ballot of a local general meeting or local delegate assembly. (See 31.C.02, page 126 of the Members’ Guide to the BCTF.)
Members are expected to attend three two-day meetings each year, on Friday/Saturday. New members receive training on the Thursday before their first meeting. This is a volunteer activity where members represent all of the teachers in BC. Accommodation, meals (per diem), leave of absence (LOA), and necessary travel costs, will be provided by the Federation in accordance with BCTF policies.
Deadline: November 3, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.
