YG Members - Understanding the Collective Agreement

The Collective Agreement is the most important document in a union member's working life but for most of us, navigating the complex wording in the Collective Agreement can be a challenge.

Enhance your understanding of your contract by participating in our one-day workshop. Get to know some of its key provisions using an easy, four-step approach to collective agreement interpretation. Using case studies, you will practice applying the collective agreement to real workplace situations. 

Any member who works for the Government of Yukon can take this course on paid union leave. All YG Shop Stewards, supervisors and team leads are strongly encouraged to take this workshop.

The registration deadline is September 1st. This course often fills up so RSVP soon and apply for leave using Article 11.10.

If you're not a YG member or can't make it to the course but you'd like to learn more, we encourage you to start with Understanding the Collective Agreement offered online through the Public Service Alliance of Canada. To create an account, you may need to update your name, employer and address -please contact the YEU to do this if you have difficulty with the online course. A similar course that is not specifically for YG members will be offered on October 11th.
