Local 500 Committees

Local 500 has a number of standing committees that deal with important issues related to our union. These committees help to serve an important function of the Local - they allow for members to become engaged with the union. Many members start as committee members before moving to a steward or executive position.

There are two types of committees. Standing committees are on-going bodies devoted to areas such as health and safety. Special or one-time committees deal with important issues that emerge from time to time.

If you would like to serve on one of these committees, please contact the Local 500 office at 942-1001 or email us at
