Workplace harassment cannot be tolerated.

Every worker deserves the right to return home at the end of the day free from injury. From time to time, you may be required to work under hazardous conditions. It’s vitally important that you understand your rights and obligations under workplace safety and health legislation. Call us for more information.

Your pay is your most important benefit. It determines the value of many other benefits such as your retirement pension. It’s important that you get paid in accordance with your duties. If you’re not sure you’re being paid properly, contact the Business Office for assistance. We can help.

Stewards and representatives are more than willing and available to help you enforce the terms of your collective agreement.  These aren’t just guidelines or employer policy, they are legally enforceable rights negotiated on your behalf.  Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about your collective agreement.
