The 2017 OPS Regional Bargaining Conferences will be held on Saturday May 27, 2017.
As a result of recent amendments to the Crown Employees Collective Bargaining Act (CECBA), OPSEU bargaining teams will negotiate two separate, stand-alone collective agreements in this round – one for the Unified bargaining unit and one for the Correctional bargaining unit. Therefore, there will be two separate Regional Bargaining Conferences taking place at the same time — one for Unified and one for Corrections.
Representatives elected at the Regional Bargaining Conferences will be entitled to partcipate in the Central Bargaining Conference on Saturday June 10, 2017.
