The Union is useless. Absolutely toxic work environment. The whole place is exactly like high school. If you`re popular, you`re fine. If people don`t like you, you`re having a bad time. Top ups, no matter what you have to say, even if they encourage you to submit ideas. Security is lax. Be prepared to take the abuse and harassment of drunk benefactors, although security is usually good enough to see these people out. You probably won`t feel sure at work how many employees have expressed to me. If you are a Shelver or another low person, don`t go into the idea that your opinion is important. Do as you are told, even if it doesn`t make sense or it takes longer, and you`ll probably be in order.
If you try to do things in a way that works for you but is a little different from the others, you will quickly be put back in line. The company is excited to be inclusive and progressive, but the treatment of employees with disabilities and sometimes benefactors is repugnant. Taxpayers would be really shocked to know. If you have an illness that goes beyond a bad back that requires housing, this is absolutely NOT the place for you. Do yourself a favor and don`t do it. Very few promotional opportunities. There is a reason why this place has more turnover than the last retail job I had. It places a public face of progressive and inclusion, but inside, it`s VERY different. If you want a copy of your collective agreement on paper, talk to your trustee.
If you don`t know who your administrator is or how to contact your office, contact the CUPE office near you. The Council encourages the development of the skills of its administrators and provides institutional affiliations to major library organizations and financial support for participation in relevant library conferences and workshops, including reimbursement of registration fees and travel and accommodation costs. The right to financial assistance for these activities is subject to the approval of the Chairman of the Board of Directors or the Vice-President. All CUPE members work under the protection of a collective agreement called a collective agreement. Your local union negotiates the terms of the agreement. Elected local union leaders also work with the employer to resolve workplace issues. If you have questions about your rights in the workplace, the best person you can talk to is your steward or local leader. You will know the details of your agreement. Please note that THE CUPE Local 37 office is currently closed for public access or walk-in due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus. The full-time officer and the office work from the office. Therefore, if our members need a meeting with one of the full-time agents, you should call the Union Room or write by email to arrange a telephone meeting or a time in order to personally meet with all COVID-19 restrictions.
-Sometimes annoying – everyone is quiet all the time (well, it`s a library), so if you`re super extrovert probably not the best not-repetitive work that are not considered “legal” copies of contracts/agreements.
