Local 70713

This site is one way that your Local 70713 executive team is showing its commitment to serving and supporting our members. This site was created as a way to keep our members informed of:

  • Local events and activities
  • Workplace and collective agreement issues
  • Important resources for those who may need them

You are encouraged to use the comment box feature at the end of each post to offer feedback or to ask any questions you may have.

The value of union membership

If problems occur for managers, they go to Human Resources.

If problems occur for employees, you should go to the union. Your Local 70713 is there for you when it counts.

No member is without a friend.

The local is your resource:

  • when personal problems or medical problems interfere with the ability to perform at the same capacity as in the past
    • After a lengthy absence, the Local provides assistance to facilitate an effective and safe return to work with the member’s interests superseding the financial interests of the insurance company;
  • for information and assistance when situations occur that require impartial assistance through a difficult personal time
  • through the grievance steps
  • for protection in Duty to Accommodate situations
  • for protection when reorganizations occur and tenure is threatened;
  • for information and protection when legislative changes occur that threaten a members ongoing livelihood
  • when harassment, bullying, discrimination or abuse of authority occurs

Your local is a friend to their membership, no matter what the circumstance is.

All consultations are private and no member information is shared even with members of the Local Executive.

Consultations can occur off-site and even on weekends.

All calls for advice or assistance are answered within 24 hours.
