Message Template to Employer for Three Working Days to Secure Workplace Representative
When your supervisor or another Employer representative notifies you of the need for a meeting, they must:
- suggest a time and a place for the meeting, which must be mutually agreeable to both you and the Employer;
- remind you of your right to have a Workplace Representative accompany you—the decision on whether to do this is yours to make; and
- give you up to three working days to find a Workplace Representative to help you.
OPS Members can use the template below to send your supervisor or Employer representative an email informing that you will be using your Article 7.2 rights to postpone the meeting by three working days to find a Workplace Representative to help you.
Template Messaging to the Employer – Securing a Workplace Representative to Attend a Meeting with You and the Employer Pursuant to Article 7.2
Dear [SUPERVISOR / EMPLOYER REPRESENTATIVE NAME],
I received notice to attend a meeting with Employer representatives on [DATE] that entitles me to secure formal representation from an AMAPCEO Workplace Representative, pursuant to Article 7 (Employee Right to Representation) of the AMAPCEO Collective Agreement.
In accordance with Article 7.2, I am asserting my rights to postpone this meeting for up to three (3) business days from the date that notice was received while I secure formal representation.
Once I have secured AMAPCEO representation, I will contact you with the name of my Workplace Representative to schedule this meeting at a mutually agreeable time and location.
