What is the role of the Bargaining Committee?
The Bargaining Committee is elected to represent your collective voice and interests with your employer. They do this by coming up with proposals to improve the working conditions at your workplace.
How does the Bargaining Committee come up with proposals?
From you! It is important to hear from every member of the bargaining unit before negotiations begin. A bargaining questionnaire or survey is a framework for members to give input on issues that are important to members to be negotiated for the next collective agreement.
Please keep an eye out in your email inbox for the survey.
