CUPE Local 139 Bargaining Survey

Dear CUPE Local 139 Members:

The Ontario Council of Hospitals of Unions (OCHU) and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) bargain a central collective agreement with 55 Ontario hospitals, representing over 50,000 affiliated members across the province.

In the coming months, OCHU will be entering into bargaining with the Ontario Hospitals Association (OHA) and our respective Employer to negotiate revisions to your Central Collective Agreement.

Central bargaining covers most issues: general wage increase, employment security, seniority, contracting out, health and safety, grievance procedure, benefits, sick leave and much more.

Some issues, however, are deemed “local issues” and are bargained by your local union. These issues include wage adjustments where there is evidence that they have fallen behind their comparators, scheduling, uniform allowance, sick leave administration provisions, vacation scheduling and others.

Your bargaining team would like to hear what your priorities are. This survey is one of the primary ways we gather information before bargaining. We need your input to help set our local priorities at the bargaining table.  This survey is designed to gather the necessary information to assist us in making your local collective Agreement provisions optimal.

The deadline for submitting your inputs to the survey is April 12, 2024, at 11:59PM.

Please be assured that the information gathered in this survey will not be shared with the employer. The results will remain anonymous and be kept confidential.

Collective bargaining is always an important time for our members and an excellent opportunity to have your voice heard. Please answer all the following questions and help position us in the best way possible to achieve a fair Collective Agreement.

Thank you,

CUPE Local 139 Executive and Bargaining Committee
