Business Office Staff

Operating under the guidance of the Board and Executive, the AESES Business Office primarily supports three main areas of operation. These include the administration of the Collective Agreements, support for the various committees, and promoting and delivering member education. The administration of the Collective Agreements is supported by the labour relations team consisting of two Labour Relations Officers and the Member Services Officer. The Executive Director and labour relations team, along with the administrative staff, work with the committees and contribute directly to the development of member education programs.
