Bargaining Survey- PDF and Survey Link

To all CUPE 59 Members,

On December 31st, 2018 our existing Collective Bargaining Agreement will expire. In the New Year, your Executive Board will begin the bargaining process with the Employer to work towards a fair contract. In anticipation of this new round of bargaining, we have prepared a quick 5-10 minute bargaining survey that we would like you complete. We would like to use this information to help capture the issues that matter most to you, the membership. We will use this information as a baseline to help formulate our bargaining priorities.  All submissions are kept confidential.  In early 2019 we will share aggregate response results with the Membership.

The survey can be filled out online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2019bargaining

For those that don’t have access to a computer, hard copies can be submitted through internal mail (CUPE 59 office #301-125 5th Avenue North) or through your Area Representative.

In Solidarity,

Executive Committee
