No no. A union can only strike when its collective agreement has expired and it negotiates collective agreements with its employer to reach a new agreement. UFCW Local 333 members who have the Short Administration Building Service in 50A Jackson Street West, On Thursday, September 12, 2019, from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., Hamilton and the Canadian Armed Forces Office of 55 Bay Street North will hold an information strike to inform the public of Hamilton Commissionaires` refusal to enter into a fair and reasonable collective agreement with their unionized employees. Follow management`s instructions, even if you think they are violating your collective agreement and they are grieving afterwards. You have the right to refuse to work if orders require you to compromise your health or safety or violate the law. All members of Local 333 have guaranteed health and safety provisions in their collective agreements. Your union will ensure that health and safety becomes a reality in your workplace. Our young members can also visit the WSIB Young Worker Awareness Program atwww.yworker.com. Once your union is certified, the employer is legally obed upon to recognize your union and enter into negotiations on your first collective agreement.
Their Union can help enforce laws and agreements that protect the health and safety of all workers in the workplace. Accidents occur because hazards are not addressed. In most years, workers are not even aware of these risks, even though the company is well aware that there is a risk. “As an organization, commissionaires are primarily made up of former military and rcmp officers, and the company is committed to “Know the Value of a Veteran,”” says Ketelaars. Clearly, this slogan rings hollow when the company refuses to negotiate a fair collective agreement that offers workers decent wages and good working conditions,” he adds. A case of maladministration occurs when an employee and the union believe that the collective agreement has been violated by the employer. If the union and the employer are unable to resolve the complaint by other means, each party may refer the complaint to an arbitration tribunal. The Minister of Labour appoints an arbitrator if agreement cannot be reached on the union and the employer. The parties are legally required to comply with the arbitrator`s decision.
Talk to your union leader first. Complaints must be filed within a number of days after the incident or your knowledge of the incident, as described in the collective agreement. Failure to meet these deadlines could result in the loss of the complaint.

A Union is a group of workers who organize themselves voluntarily to promote their mutual interests, such as wages, working conditions, benefits, etc., obtained through collective bargaining. If your employer violates a policy or clause in the collective agreement, your Union Rep or Union Steward will help you file a complaint. These benefit claims are filed and the legal department will represent you in the proceedings. It is not uncommon for complaints to be resolved without arbitration, but sometimes they go to the point where the parties meet with an arbitrator who hears both cases and makes a decision.
