16 Sep Cupe Collective Agreement 2019 Ontario
Sunday`s deal narrowly escaped a provincial strike that reportedly closed hundreds of schools on Monday. All CUPE members work under the protection of a contract called a collective agreement. Your local union negotiates the terms of the agreement. Elected local union leaders also work with the employer to resolve issues in the workplace. If you have questions about your rights at work, the best person you can talk to is your local steward or executive. You will know the specific details of your agreement. If you would like a hard copy of your collective agreement, please speak to your steward. If you don`t know who your steward is or how to reach your contact, contact the CUPE office near you. Standards for disease reporting are established across the province. The sick leave plan remains the same with 11 fully paid sick days and 120 days of short-term leave, 90% paid.
Tens of thousands of education workers in Ontario will see a modest wage increase, job security and an unchanged sick leave plan as part of an 11-hour deal between union representation and Doug Ford`s government. School authorities are receiving $600,000 to offset costs for workers who remain to keep schools open to the community outside of school hours.
