Since 1936, we have bargained hundreds of workplace contracts and agreements.
We are proud of what we have accomplished and we continue to work hard to improve workplace conditions for our members through effective collective bargaining with employers.
You can help ensure your collective agreement reflects your needs.
- Enforce your rights
If you are entitled to a benefit or condition of your agreement, make sure to use it. Don't hesitate to contact your GSU staff rep if you need clarification or assistance.
- Be involved in bargaining
Participate in developing bargaining proposals to be taken to the bargaining table with your employer. Attend bargaining meetings, vote on settlements, and support your bargaining committee as they work toward changes to secure and strengthen your collective agreement.
- Make sure we have your current contact information
We do our best to keep GSU members apprised of bargaining progress through out web page, the Tuesday Members' Memo and email updates. Be sure to update us with any changes to your email address.
