Well Summer is in full swing and we wanted to provide an update for this month a little early this month.

City of Ottawa Inside/Outside Collective Agreement

After many exchanges between the Employer and the Union we now have a Final Draft of the Collective Agreement for January 1st 2020 to December 31st 2024. This version is heading off to translation and then will be signed. We have posted the Final Draft on the website at www.cupe503.com. Once the final version is signed copies will be printed and available to the membership.

Ottawa Public Library

The lead negotiator for the Union completed the first draft of the OPL Collective Agreement and it is now in the Employer’s hands. In the interim the Union did create a Reference Document for OPL Members. It is not the full Collective Agreement but rather the Articles that were amended in this round of negotiations. If you wish to receive a copy please provide your personal email address to communications@cupe503.com.
