Collective agreement

Your collective agreement sets out your rights and responsibilities in the workplace.  If you have questions or concerns, please talk to one of your steward or a member of the executive.


Our Bylaws set out the rules for how our local democratically elects our representatives, and how it is run. These Bylaws were approved by CUPE National in July of 2014.
