City Of St Catharines Collective Agreement

“Our members understand the financial challenges facing the city. We believe this agreement recognizes this and respects the work our members do for the City of St. Catharines and its citizens,” said Steve Bittner, President of CUPE 157. The term “industrial relations” is widely interpreted as involving issues of unionization or non-unionization, as well as remuneration outside traditional employment agreements. The most obvious application of the exception is the debate on the negotiation of collective agreements and contracts for non-unionized workers[1], including discussions in the context of an ongoing labour dispute. [2] The exception allows for discussion of the qualifications[3] and the allowances of some workers. It also discusses staff changes, workload and the roles of some employees. [6] Staff performance, behaviour and discipline are cancelled, as are discussions about hiring or downtime. [7] as well as discussions about hiring or terminating staff. [8] Discussions on municipal restructuring or restructuring may be covered by the exception. [9] While general discussions on organizational charts generally do not adapt,[10] issues related to the impact on individual positions, role change and working conditions are covered by the exception. [11] The waiver does not include board compensation[12] unless it is related to changes in staff compensation. [13] The exception for labour relations or worker bargaining does not involve discussions about the assessment[14] or the review[15] of a municipal service or company.
