When to contact a Workplace Rep...
If you require information on your Collective Agreement or Employer’s policies, or you believe that your rights have been violated, or if you are being asked to attend a meeting with your manager, you can contact a Workplace Representative to get help.
A Workplace Representative is a trained AMAPCEO member who has volunteered to confidentially assist members in the workplace. They are your first point of contact in seeking information and representation, as well as dealing with violations of your rights (also known as the Dispute Resolution Process).
The Workplace Representative acts as the eyes and ears for AMAPCEO in the workplace to ensure fairness and adherence to the Collective Agreement by the Employer.
Your Collective Agreement provides you the "right" to AMAPCEO representation by a Workplace Representative in certain circumstances. For more details, please see the Fact Sheet entitled "Right to AMAPCEO Representation".
And what they can help you with:
- Understanding your working conditions and entitlements;
- Understanding the Employer’s obligations under the Collective Agreement, as well as the application of the Employer’s policies, guidelines, directives, and other legislation and regulations;
- Addressing concerns or issues with management;
- Dealing with a workplace problem or complaint informally;
- Providing representation in any informal meetings with your manager related to accommodation issues, attendance issues, performance issues or disciplinary issues;
- Preparing the necessary documentation to file a formal dispute; and
- Representing you in a Stage One dispute meeting with your manager (BPS unit members only).
