"We are concerned that the municipal administration is unable or unsirable to address allegations of human rights issues, including complaints about racism, harassment and harassment," Delbridge said in a written statement posted online. In an interview with CTV News, Delbridge said he was unable to give concrete examples or give more details about the allegations, citing data protection concerns and ongoing complaints against the city. All CUPE members work under the protection of a contract called a collective agreement. Your local union negotiates the terms of the agreement. Elected local union leaders also work with the employer to resolve issues in the workplace. Bowman said he had approached the city`s CAO about the concerns and had been warned that the city would contact the union. "We hope that there can be a reform of the policy, that some measures will be taken," he said. "We are more than ready to meet with the city, but at the end of the day, these claims and issues are often only due to a lack of leadership, and we hope there will be some pressure because of this letter." He said several city councillors and some high-level municipalities had spoken to him about the concerns. CUPE Local 500 negotiates and manages fourteen collective agreements and has approximately 5,000 members. Our bargaining units range from one member to about 5,000 in the City of Winnipeg.
If you have questions about your rights at work, the best person you can talk to is your local steward or executive. You will know the specific details of your agreement. WINNIPEG — The union representing municipal employees has sent a letter to Winnipeg`s mayor and council outsing its inaction on complaints about racism, harassment and harassment that have led to "toxic employment." If you would like a hard copy of your collective agreement, please speak to your steward. If you don`t know who your steward is or how to reach your contact, contact the CUPE office near you. If you are unsure of the bargaining unit you belong to, contact local 500 at 204-942-1001 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Delbridge said the union has also filed lawsuits against the city for awarding "multi-million dollar contracts" to outsourced companies without consultation or oversight — something that is contrary to the city`s collective agreement with the union. . .
