Composition of Personnel Committees

It is expected that if a member of a personnel committee (such as a Search Committee or an STP Committee) has a conflict of interest or a reasonable apprehension of bias, that s/he would not participate in the committee and its deliberations. In the event that a Member believes a person on such a committee has a conflict of interest or a reasonable apprehension of bias, the Member may request for that person to be removed from the Committee. To initiate this process, submit a written request to either the University President or the Association President following the procedures outlined below.

Relevant Article: 17.09.2

17.09.2     When a Member believes a person on a personnel committee which will be deciding a matter directly affecting the Member should be removed because of a conflict of interest or a reasonable apprehension of bias, the Member shall file a written and signed complaint with either the President or the Association President within ten (10) working days of the formation of the committee. Any disputes regarding the applicability of Article 17.09.1 resulting from a complaint shall be resolved using the procedure in Article1.
