Representatives of the Concordia University Employee Union (CUPEU) and the University Industrial Relations Team met on November 12 to sign a new collective agreement and celebrate the success of the previous round of negotiations. All CUPE members work under the protection of a collective agreement called a collective agreement. Your local union negotiates the terms of the agreement. Elected local union leaders also work with the employer to resolve workplace issues. If you want a copy of your collective agreement on paper, talk to your trustee. If you don`t know who your administrator is or how to contact your office, contact the CUPE office near you. “I think the pace of negotiations is good for the people around the table,” she said. “We don`t always agree and it`s not always easy, but it`s nice to know that we have the right people at meetings who can sit down and have those conversations. Because of their hard work, we have an agreement that we can be proud of. If you have questions about your rights in the workplace, the best person you can talk to is your steward or local leader. You will know the details of your agreement. The gratitude and recognition at the celebration concerned not only the participants in the negotiations, but also the work of all CUPEU members.
