Several committees have been formed to provide oversight and direction for various functions of our local:

Pension Trustee

Each member School Board can send two representatives to sit on the Pension Trustees Committee, one Employer Representative, and one Employee Representative.

Their duties are to oversee the management, business, property and the affairs of the NSSBA pension plan.


Union Shop Stewards are an important part of any union. They are employees who work along side of us in the workplace. But, they are willing to take on the responsibility of helping to interpret the collective agreement and to assist any employee who feels that he has been unfairly treated by the either the employer or any other employee. They are the employee’s representative, and are recognized as such in the collective agreement.
