A BETTER STRONGER UNION
Healthcare Workers Representing Health Care Workers
HOPE Representatives are experienced negotiators and problem-solvers. They know how to deal with management and are fearless in standing up for their members. Backing up our Representatives is an outstanding in-house legal department.
Every HOPE member has free access to our in-house legal team with over 100 years of collective experience with grievances, arbitrations and WSIB issues. If you have a work-related legal issue, you’re in good hands with HOPE.
NEGOTIATING YOUR CLLECTIVE AGREEMENT
As soon as HOPE is certified by the government as your legal representative, we get immediately to work on negotiating your first collective agreement. That agreement is a legally-enforceable contract that sets out your wages, benefits working conditions and other rights related to your job. Here’s how it happens:
PROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS
A collective agreement is not worth much if it isn’t enforced. That takes vigilance and resources. HOPE has both.
HOPE ALSO PROTECTS YOUR WSIB RIGHTS
HOPE’s workplace Stewards are trained to be an effective first line of defense of members’ rights. Do not hesitate to talk to your HOPE Steward about any work-related issue. He or she will know what to do and will contact your full-time Representative at once if necessary.
HOPE Stewards are trained to handle issues that arise in the workplace. They are dedicated volunteers who care about their co-workers.
HOPE will be happy to talk to you and answer all the questions you may have about our Union. All inquiries are confidential.
