Volunteers in the Workplace

We have a certification in place that does not permit our employer to contract out our work.  This means they cannot cut back our hours or remove positions that creates an excessive workload for the remaining staff and then try and permit volunteers to do our work; this would be considered “Contracting Out” which is not permitted.

As such we are asking all members to be watching for anyone coming into your worksites and performing CUPE work, or work that you believe to be CUPE work, so that the Executive can follow up.
