Member Representation Policy

It is the responsibility of Unifor Local 848 to represent its members at the bargaining table and for legitimate grievances against the employer and for other reasons as deemed appropriate by the members from time to time. It is the policy of Unifor to not represent members who move to positions within the company that are “beyond the scope of the (collective) agreement” as such representation that is incompatible with the Labour Relations Act. Positions “beyond the scope of the agreement” are deemed to be the Operations Co-ordinator and Operations Shift Co-ordinator jobs. It may include other similar positions depending on the department and any other positions as identified by the membership from time to time.
