Our union bargains for health and safety rules to prevent injury and even death on the job. We stand up for workers and provide the protection they need to feel secure in reporting incidents and workplace hazards. We all have to work together to be sure those laws are enforced.
Our Health & Safety committees are here to raise awareness about workplace hazards. They ensure that incidents, injuries, and possible hazards, are properly reported and they provide support to workers who have been injured on the job.
As a member of CUPE Local 716 you will be receiving a request in the interoffice mail to consider joining your worksite’s Health & Safety Committee. Please consider the request carefully. Each worksite should have a representative who is trained on how to ensure injuries and dangers are reported.
You will be helping yourself and your brothers and sisters in CUPE local 716.
