Historically, Unifor was the union that challenged the status quo in collective health bargaining. We realized that the best way to get a good deal for all parties was to avoid contractual agreements through arbitration, and instead to work with employers to negotiate a collective agreement. This meant that it was the health professionals themselves who had the final say, not an arbitrator. If you want a copy of your collective agreement on paper, talk to your trustee. If you don`t know who your administrator is or how to contact your office, contact the CUPE office near you. If you have questions about your rights in the workplace, the best person you can talk to is your steward or local leader. You will know the details of your agreement. All CUPE members work under the protection of a collective agreement called a collective agreement. Your local union negotiates the terms of the agreement.
Elected local union leaders also work with the employer to resolve workplace issues. The Ontario Hospital Council (OCHU) is the CUPE Hospital Service. OCHU/CUPE negotiates a provincial collective agreement with the Ontario Hospital Association and establishes this model across the hospital sector and for long-term care centres that have a relationship with a hospital. CUPE`s negotiations provide leadership for all employees in Ontario hospitals, NPRs and offices. The comparison of our collective agreements with other unions confirms this. This is why Unifor`s collective agreements contain excellent provisions for benefits for workers who retire early, unreased part-time work instead of retirement insurance, parental leave and maternity leave for 52 full weeks, and the language of the vacancy notice that places the issue of seniority at the forefront.
