Contracted support services workers gear up for fall bargaining
With collective agreements for most contracted support services workers(CSSW) expiring at the end of September 2020, HEU members in this sector are preparing for bargaining.
At the same time, the union continues to push for contracted support work to be brought “in house” under the direct control of health authorities where workers would be covered by the Facilities Collective Agreement.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has hampered face-to-face meetings and large gatherings, HEU is forging ahead with bargaining preparations, using other tools and electronic platforms that will allow for member participation in the bargaining process.
