Proudly Serving the Residents of Durham


A Message from the Chief Steward

Hello fellow 1764 Members,

I wanted to take a moment to bring a couple of things to your attention.

Firstly, if you think you may want to grieve something, you have 5 days to do so. If you are considering grieving something, please reach out to myself or another Union representative as soon as possible so we don’t miss the deadline!

In addition, if you are injured on the job and either fill out an incident report or make a WSIB claim, please let someone from the Union know. We can help you navigate the process. It is very important to document workplace accidents and incidents and reporting them is the only way to ensure that you are protected should further issues arise from the incident.

Lastly, if you are off on a medical leave or are preparing to return to work from a medical leave, please reach out to your Union. We can help you navigate the process and connect you with services that may be able to help you.

Thank You

Kristie Osmond-Jones

Bill C-27 is in the news – but what does it actually do?

Bill C-27 has been front and centre in the media this week, due to the controversy around Liberal Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s personal assets. But lost in the fray is much information about what this dangerous legislation would actually do. Bill C-27 would permit federally-regulated employers (like airlines, telecoms, banks, and Crown Corporations) to establish a “Target Benefit” pension plan. These pension plans are essentially the opposite of […]

NAFTA talks not tackling deal’s fundamental flaws

When talks resume in November, the Canadian government must push harder to fix the many problems with the North American Free Trade Agreement. This includes eliminating Chapter 11, NAFTA’s “investor-state dispute settlement” rules. Chapter 11 lets US and Mexican corporations sue the Canadian government for decisions that interfere with investments – and profits.
