1Look at your collective agreement
Your collective agreement outlines the rights and responsibilities of you and and your employer, including hours of work, overtime, vacation, sick, family-related and other types of leave, grievance procedures, pay, benefits, and much more. There is a very good chance that your question will be answered within this agreement.
When you started work, your Human Resources department should have supplied you with a printed copy of your collective agreement. You can also view it online on your Local’s page by accessing the LOCALS tab at the top of the page and choosing your local.
2AContact your President or Steward
The President is responsible for coordinating the administration of Local affairs. They are the chief spokesperson of the Local in its dealings with management.
The Chief Steward recruits and advises stewards, and aids communication between them. They are responsible for ensuring the proper application of collective agreements, acts and regulations.You can find their contact information by accessing the LOCALS tab at the top of the page and choosing your local.
