USW Local 4120

Hi Members,

Please find a link  below to an update from the USW National Office in regards to the ongoing negotiations between the Government and the University of Guelph and USW on behalf of our members.

The governments actions make no sense as our employer tries to minimize the negative impact on our members during these times by offering to top-up salaries, only to be prevented by the government.

Please follow this link to see the Report on the 2019 Projects (including the Friday Meal Program hosted by Local 4120).

The Downtown Guelph organizations who offer services to the vulnerable population in Guelph (Royal City Mission, The Drop In Centre, Hope House and others) have met to figure out the best way to continue providing valuable services to those most vulnerable in our city.

The current plan is as follows:

Hope House is offering out-services such as food cupboard delivery.

The Drop-In Centre is currently closed. Meanwhile, the staff are working in our local hotels to help support the homeless being housed during the Covid-19 crisis.

We have had some questions raised regarding how to use our many bargained leave options. I have put together some information below regarding the different types of leave that are in our contract, what article they are from, and when they apply during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Here is a link to the full collective agreement:
