We have news!!!
We have completed our last Bargaining Caucus day. We are pleased with our progress and are confident that we prepared a good strategy for the bargaining table when we meet with management.
Our first day of bargaining with the employer will be Tuesday December 2nd and we have scheduled more days after that: December 3rd, 10th, 11th, and 12th.
We continue to be energized by your encouraging emails, texts, phone calls and personal comments - please keep them coming!
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BILL 124: Protecting a Sustainable Public Sector for Future Generations Act
The Ford government has passed legislation for public sector employees limiting all monetary increases to a maximum of 1% per year for the next 3 years. This would include wage increases, increases to employee benefits, or anything of monetary value.
Bill 124, the law itself, may be unconstitutional and will be challenged by OPSEU and our Labour partners in court as the collective bargaining process is protected under section 2 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Bargaining Team Change:
It is with regret that Piri Roberti has stepped down from the Bargaining Team. Thank you Piri for your dedication and contribution and we know you'll be mobilizing for us from the sidelines!
We are pleased to welcome our 1st alternate Tracy Dupuis as the newest Bargaining team member. Tracy brings a valued perspective to round out the team and has already made an "impact".
Thank you for your continued support.
J. Beckett, J. Chambo, S. Tobin, S. Jenkins-Moss, T. Dupuis
