On the Canadian government`s websites, you will find a lot of information about collective bargaining in Canada, upcoming collective bargaining, work stoppages, wage agreements, ratified comparisons and many more. Through a role-playing activity, participants have the opportunity to experience the process, develop contractual formulas, negotiate an agreement (wages, social benefits and working conditions) and deepen their understanding of the role of the bargaining committee during negotiations. We are debating the ratification process and the role of the committee in presenting a provisional agreement for members. Attention is also paid to the importance of collective bargaining as an opportunity to engage members, associate members with the union and thus strengthen the local union. Learn about what`s happening at Unifor and how the union is improving the lives of all workers in Canada. Subscribe to our Uniforum E-Newsletter. Start: Collective Bargaining Information from the Government of Canada`s Website (2014): Five-day Collective Bargaining focuses on maximizing our bargaining power by developing a strategic approach. We discuss the importance of preparation, including the preparation of members` proposals, the assessment of the negotiating climate, the creation of a strong committee, the development of a package of strong proposals and the setting of priorities. . This program will provide bargaining committee members with a solid foundation for their work at the bargaining table. Among the main topics being negotiated are wages, job security, health programs/benefits and pension plans, for which employers are calling on unions to make more concessions and, as a result, we have seen that wages have risen to their lowest level since 1998. . .
