The Public Services Sustainability Act: Today, unions and the government have come together in court to address this challenge. This legal challenge does not require any salary increase or improvement of our collective agreement. What we are asking for is that we be able to make these improvements, as we do. This bill has removed that right, which goes against the Canadian Bill of Rights. Unit Vice President: Mike Pajemolincupe204hsc@gmail.com STATMENT: Another Union will tell you that the winning collective agreement does not matter, because we are going from scratch, because the government really wants us to be under one agreement. CUPE Local 500 collective agreements and manages fourteen collective agreements and are approximately 5,000 members. Our rates range from one member to about 5000 in the City of Winnipeg. Contact CUPE 204 As you sent it in the last email, you can contact CUPE 204 via its general email to cupe204.ca@gmail.com. Debbie Boissonneault, the local president, can be contacted under cupe204president@gmail.com.

Robyn Powell remains our national representative and can send an email to rpowell@cupe.ca. You can also contact me as a Union service agent in cupe204acute@gmail.com. Since the negotiations are based on consensus, nothing can be added to an agreement or withdrawn from the agreement without the agreement of both parties (note – CUPE did not accept the concessions mentioned above, so the employer withdrew them. The employer could not simply include them in the agreement without CUPE`s agreement.) So if a union thinks it can find something in an agreement, they are wrong themselves. There are some things that the employer does not want to have included in the agreement, so they do not agree. If you are unsure of the bargaining unit you belong to, contact local office 500 at 204-942-1001 or email us at union@cupe500.mb.ca. Some, whether you work after 4:00 or maybe even 16:15, will see a clue land in your work inbox announcing that the dental plan premium will increase. Some of you know that on December 13, 2019, HSC also announced that its premiums would also increase effective January 30, 2020. The CCMB and HSC are the only entities within the PHCC collective agreements that fall under our dental plan. All other facilities use HEBP dental. CUPE 5362 did not receive this increase until January, after repeatedly requesting that HSC premiums increase. As soon as we received this notification, we filed a complaint arguing this increase.

FYI – CUPE 204 has also filed a complaint with HSC about its increase, so we will probably argue together as we move towards a merger with Local 204. Until the abuses are resolved, we have to pay the premium increase.
