COI Calls for Nominations: Labour/Workplace

The Mining Association of Canada (MAC) is seeking nominations of candidates to participate on its Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) Community of Interest (COI) Advisory Panel. The MAC Board established the Panel in 2004 to advise on the design and implementation of TSM and to provide a mechanism for two‐way dialogue between MAC and its communities of interest in Canada.

The Panel is currently seeking nominations for the following core category:

Labour and Workplace: This position on the Panel is made up of one (1) individual who is a representative of organized labour with expertise and knowledge of the rights, interests, safety, and
needs of mining workers. Specifically, the successful candidate will:

  1. Be actively engaged in a mining‐related union and bring the perspective of organized labour to COI Panel discussions.
  2. Have a broad understanding of labour‐related issues in the mining industry.
  3. Have knowledge of current and emerging expectations from organized labour related to the performance of the mining sector.

Applicants can be nominated or self‐nominated. If you or someone you know is interested in applying to one of the open positions noted above, please complete and submit the COI Panel nomination form, with a current CV to Tara Shea at MAC by email at tshea@mining.ca.

The deadline for nominating candidates is July 30th, 2019.
