YG Shop Stewards: What you Need to Know About the Respectful Workplace Office

Unlike most collective agreements, the YG-PSAC/YEU contract places a pathway for harassment cases away from the grievance route. Instead, members are directed to the Respectful Workplace Office (RWO). What happens when the RWO is involved? How are conflicts managed? What is the role of the steward? In cases of conflict involving members, the Labour Relations Advisors at the YEU office handle the dealings with the members and the RWO. But stewards have the all-important role of conveying helpful information to their co-workers about processes like the RWO.

Come to this Zoom session to learn about the RWO process and its services so that you can explain it to members and know about its limitations. Sue Koser, Labour Relations Advisor at YEU will share her expertise from many years of involvement with the RWO.
