Your rights are protected by AMAPCEO. We work to support you in the workplace and ensure that the employer adheres to your Collective Agreement. Your Collective Agreement rights defend you alongside Ontario’s labour laws and the Ontario Human Rights Code.
The real strength of our union lies in our membership who keep us informed about issues and events in the workplace.
For AMAPCEO to be effective, it is vital that all members know their rights.
The first step to being informed about your employee rights and the employer's obligations is to read and become familiar with your Collective Agreement. To better understand some of the more important provisions of the Agreement, AMAPCEO also offers a variety of guides and fact sheets to make things simple and easy to understand. Be sure to check out our Resources section.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to defend your rights alone. It takes all of us to ensure that the Collective Agreement is upheld and properly understood. This is why we have more than 180 trained Workplace Representatives and over thirty-five staff members to support you and provide you with additional information and advice. We also invite you to look at the list of ways you can participate in union activity in the workplace.

In addition to rights that guarantee fairness and equity in the workplace, every member has rights within AMAPCEO.
Information is relayed to members through weekly electronic bulletins and bi-monthly electronic newsletters. Twice a year we mail a hardcopy newsletter to your household. Throughout the year AMAPCEO organizes face-to-face meetings with your Chapter Executive to hear directly from you. During bargaining, to keep members up to date, we also hold regular telephone townhall meetings to increase your access.
Every member can vote to determine who will represent you at a Chapter level. Elections for Chapter Chair and Delegate positions are all done electronically and administered through a third-party provider.
The only way that AMAPCEO can keep you informed is if you provide up-to-date personal contact information. Be sure to keep us in the loop about any changes by using our easy online form, located in the Profile box on your member homepage.
