College Workload Monitoring Group

Advocating for your own best working conditions — and, therefore, your students’ best learning conditions – can be as easy as checking the right boxes and sending your Standard Workload Form (SWF) off to the College Workload Monitoring Group (CWMG). Please read over the SWF Process. 

It can be difficult to stand up and deman that your work be scheduled and fairly compensated, the process itself is relatively straightforward, and we are here to help you every step of the way. 

CWMG Composition:

The CWMG consists of 8 members, four appointed by the College, and four appointed by Local 556. A quorum at CWMG meetings is 4, 6, or 8 members with equal representation from both the College and Local 556. 

CWMG Functions: 

  • reviewing workload assignments in general at the college and resolving apparent inequitable assignments;
  • reviewing specific disputes pursuant to 11.02 A 4 and/or 11.02 A 6 (a) and where possible resolving such disputes;
  • making recommendations to the college on the operation of workload assignments at the college;
  • reviewing individual workload assignments where requested by the teacher or the Union Local and, where possible, resolving the disputes;
  • making recommendations to the college and Union Local committees appointed under Article 7, Union College Committee, as to amendments or additions to the provisions governing workload assignments at the college for local negotiation in accordance with 11.02 G in order to address particular workload needs at the college.

Where feasible, the CWMG meets once weekly. At George Brown College, these meetings generally take place on Friday mornings, starting at 9:00 am.
