Health Insurance Committee


The Health Insurance Committee is made up of the School Sector Vice-President of Finance, and two other union members from local CSN support staff unions who have been duly elected at a School Sector Council meeting.

Current  members are:

  • Sylvain Bastien, vice-president ─ finances of the School Sector
  • Rémi Desrosiers, from the Syndicat national des employées et employés de la Commission scolaire de Montréal (CSN)
  • Jan-Mark Dufour, from the Syndicat des travailleuses et travailleurs de la commission scolaire au Cœur-des-Vallées (CSN)
  • Jean Favreau, FEESP union advisor

Role and Mandate

The Collective Health Insurance Policy which covers most CSN/FEESP School Sector support-staff union members, is chosen by the School Sector Health Insurance Committee. It is their responsibility to analyse the needs of the union members as a whole, make recommendations to the School Sector Council, inform and consult the local unions, and ensure that the established policies are respected. Re-negotiation of the insurance policy takes place once per year.
