OPSEU begins next phase of work-to-rule campaign, urges members to reject contract offered

January 20, 2022
The Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) has started the next phase of its work-to-rule campaign and is urging members to reject the contract that the College Employer Council will be offering them in February. “That offer wasn’t good enough [in December] and we don’t expect it’s going to be good enough now, because it hasn’t shifted,” said OPSEU bargaining chair JP Hornick. Hornick says that pay and benefits are not part of the struggle, but that other issues still need to be resolved, such as evaluation time and workload. OPSEU members will put a signature at the bottom of emails explaining that they are in a labour dispute with their employers. CTV News (ON)
