Collective Agreement 2017-19

Your collective agreement sets out your rights and responsibilities at work. If you have any questions or concerns about your treatment, please talk to 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.


Please refer to L25.00 BENEFITS of the Collective Agreement for information on the language that applies to our current benefits plan.  

Members can also go to their employee portal on for specific benefits information.

Language from Part A – Central Articles indicates:

Parties have agreed to participate in the Provincial Benefit Trust set out in the appended Letter
of Understanding subject to 4.2.1(c). The date on which the benefit plan commences
participation in the Trust shall be referred to herein as the “Participation Date”.
The Boards will continue to provide benefits in accordance with the existing benefit plans and
terms of collective agreements in effect as of August 31, 2014 until the Employees’
