Niagara Parks Collective Agreement

Niagara Parks Police was first founded in 1887 by the Niagara Parks Commission. Its goal is to protect the millions of visitors who arrive from around the world to see NiagaraFalls, Fort Erie and Niagara-on-the-Lake, as well as protect the vast parks under the tutelage of the Park Commission. The new collective agreement is retroactive to November 1, 2017 and ends on October 31, 2021. All CUPE members work under the protection of a collective agreement called a collective agreement. Your local union negotiates the terms of the agreement. Elected local union leaders also work with the employer to resolve workplace issues. „The new strategic plan builds on The important responsibilities of Niagara Parks as we strive to achieve our goal of becoming one of the most spectacular parks in the world. This new agreement reflects our commitment to working together for a sustainable and prosperous Niagara Park. „With the recent introduction of the new 10-year strategic plan and the Niagara Parks branding exercise, the timing of this new agreement with our Parks employees could not have been better chosen,“ said Janice Thomson, President of Niagara Parks. The formal Memorandum of Understanding was ratified by both sides, with Local 217 members voting Thursday on the new agreement and the commission approved the adoption of the new agreement on Friday. The new contract includes annual salary increases, performance improvements and a number of language changes that should help clarify the agreement and promote operational efficiency. The contract includes four-year salary increases of 8 to 11 percent, depending on the job category, said Parking Commission Executive Director John Lohuis.

If you have questions about your rights in the workplace, the best person you can talk to is your steward or local leader. You will know the details of your agreement. If you want a copy of your collective agreement on paper, talk to your trustee. If you don`t know who your administrator is or how to contact your office, contact the CUPE office near you. The Niagara Parks Commission has signed a new four-year contract with its park employees, members of Local Union 217 of the Ontario Public Service. The Ontario Public Service Workers Union, which represents 18 officers and four civilian employees, and the employer, the Niagara Parks Commission, have reached an agreement.
