This conference is open to all units even if you are not in a bargaining year. We will work together to build our bargaining power in the face of an ever-challenging environment.
We will learn new bargaining strategies to help strengthen our Collective Agreements and fight off concessions.
All bargaining units in OPSEU Sectors 2, 4, 5, 7, and 15, whether in a bargaining year or not, are invited to send one representative per unit to the conference. This conference should be attended by the Bargaining Team Chair if already elected. If no election has been held, the highest-ranking officer from each unit should attend. All Sector Executives, Sector 2 Mobilizers, and Sector 4 Bargaining Council members are automatic representatives over and above the entitlement for your bargaining unit.
All bargaining unit Alternates/Observers are entitled to attend the conference; however, all expenses, including hotel costs, are to be paid for by your respective bargaining unit local.
