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.

Anyone who is a union member can be nominated to be on the bargaining committee.

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 on your email inbox for the survey.

What happens next?

In the event that more than two (2) nominations are received, an election will occur with further details to follow. 

Please note that your current collective agreement will remain in full force and effect while the bargaining process is underway. You can find a copy of the current collective agreement here

In solidarity,

Kathleen Mann, Staff Representative
