The main priority of your trade union negotiation committee in the negotiations is to reach the best possible agreement for you and your employees. But you can`t get by on your own. If you want a fair treaty, you must participate as much as possible in the negotiation process and support your negotiating committee. Our team has negotiated hundreds of agreements and has decades of experience negotiating contracts with employers of all sizes and sectors. An agreement will be ratified if workers vote 50 per cent plus one to accept its terms. Once ratified, the treaty will become final and binding until it is dissolved. If a majority does not vote "yes," the offer is rejected. The rights and privileges outlined in your union contract were achieved through the determination and unity of union members like you, who work together over the years for fairness in the workplace. Union negotiators have negotiated with workers in your bargaining unit many of the benefits you enjoy in the workplace through the collective bargaining process.
Your union contract has been voted on and approved by membership in your workplace. Your union contract is negotiated as part of collective bargaining. Members` contributions are essential to achieving equity at the negotiating table together. This highly qualified team is your negotiating committee and their main priority in the negotiations is to get the best possible deal for you and your employees. Sometimes it can be a labour dispute to reach an agreement. CONTACTSJohn Nock President, UFCW Local 12R24 905-854-1224 email@example.com/ Your union contract is one of the most important documents you have as a union member. It contains practical and relevant information about your wages, benefits and working conditions. This legally binding agreement has a direct impact on your life, from the moment your increases go to your rights and benefits in your workplace.

Your union`s goal at the bargaining table is to get the best deal possible for you and your employees. However, if the company tries to demand reductions in our members` pay or has inappropriate expectations, a labour dispute may be inevitable. Just as the employer has no say in our decision to strike, the union has no say if the employer decides to lock up the workers. In addition, your bargaining committee is supported by union representatives and a large number of professional experts, including legal advisors, health and safety and WSIB supporters.
