OPS Bargaining – Coming Soon

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It won’t be long before bargaining becomes the hot topic in our workplaces.  In the coming weeks we will be speaking with members to find out what your demand interests are for our new OPS contract.

Starting sometime this week, stewards will be handing out demand setting surveys.  These surveys will be your chance to directly communicate what you want to see in our new contract.  It is very important that you fill out the survey and get it back to a steward as soon as possible.  The surveys are anonymous.

On Wednesday, May 16th, the local will host our Local Demand Setting and Delegate Election Meeting.  During this meeting, we will review the survey results and determine our local’s list of demands for each bargaining unit.  We will then elect delegates to represent our local at the next level of demand setting meetings in Belleville on June 9th.  Other business will be discussed as well.  Click here to download a copy of the poster.

OPSEU activists have been writing about this year’s bargaining and the issues facing us in our bargaining.  We have links to the right on our website for the PS: Let’s Talk blog and the Plug Yourself Into Bargaining pages of OPSEU.org.  These articles share some of the challenges faced by public servants in Ontario.

Please check back often for updates on the upcoming OPS Bargaining.  To better stay informed, why not subscribe to get email updates from our website.  Simply fill out the form found here.
