What is my union contract?
Your contract is a legally binding document that details the majority of your rights and responsibilities during your employment.
What do I do if I feel my rights have been violated?
1. Check the facts in your contract! Many of the answers you seek are detailed in this document. For instance: holiday pay, vacation time, healthcare, retirement plan, discipline, grievance procedure (a system for fighting disciplinary action), scheduling, seniority, etc.
2. Talk to a shop steward or your worker advocate
3. File a grievance – see the grievance procedure section in your contract for how to do this. Make sure to check how many days you have to file it!
