We Own It – Mandatory Article

Moved by Thomas/Almeida

Whereas the We Own It motion that was passed at the 2016 Convention recognized the importance of fighting privatization at the bargaining table; and

Whereas OPSEU already has a long practice of adopting policies that require the tabling of specific language during bargaining;

Therefore be it resolved that every OPSEU bargaining team is required to table the following language to ensure that our public services remain efficient, effective, accountable and transparent; and

Be it further resolved that bargaining teams have flexibility at the bargaining table to tailor the mandatory language to meet their individual situations.

Quality Public Services

XX.1 Preamble

1.1 The Employer and the Union share a commitment to ensuring that the citizens of Ontario receive quality public services delivered in an effective and professional manner by public sector employees. The parties agree to explore options to improve and enhance the delivery of public services and that new services offered meet the highest possible standard.

1.2 The parties further agree to ensure that public services in Ontario are provided in an accountable, transparent and efficient manner to all members of the public.

1.3 The Union and the Employer agree to establish a process to encourage input from employees on how the delivery of the services they provide can be improved and delivered in a more effective and efficient manner.

xx.2 Notification

2.1 The Employer agrees that it will notify the Union of any proposals being considered to any services that are covered by this collective agreement that would involve the transfer, conveyance, disposition or sale of an undertaking, all or part of a business, enterprise, institution, program, project or work currently carried out by the Employer and employees covered by this collective agreement to another organization.

2.2 The Employer further agrees that no proposal for a transfer of an undertaking will be considered, and that work of the bargaining unit will not be privatized or contracted out to the private sector, unless there is demonstrable evidence these will lead to improved delivery of public services and the process below has been followed:

a) Prior to developing an RFP or making any recommendations, the Employer and the Union will establish a Public Service Review Committee (PSRC) that will review and analyze the proposal under consideration. The PSRC will be provided with all relevant information necessary to conduct a cost benefit analysis of the proposal to determine what the actual costs of the proposal will be. The cost benefit analysis will include a comprehensive social and economic impact study.

b) The PSRC will have equal representation from the Union and the Employer and an independent third party will be hired by the Employer to act as Chair. For the time spent participating in the work of the PSRC, employees' salary, credits, and applicable benefits shall be maintained by the Employer.

c) The PSRC shall decide on a mechanism for consultation with members of the public who may be affected by the proposal and for input from other stakeholders.

d) The PSRC will issue a final report and recommendations which shall be made public and shared with the appropriate politicians and/or government bureaucrats.

e) The Employer agrees that any proposal for a transfer of an undertaking described above will proceed only if the PSRC determines that it will lead to improved delivery and quality of services with the same level of accountability and transparency that is provided by the public service.

f) If there is a transfer of an undertaking agreed to by the PSRC, employees will have the ability to move to the new employer with all existing rights, benefits and entitlements as per this collective agreement.

XX.3 Contracting In

3.1 The parties agree that the Joint Labour-Management Committee will review any existing contracted out work or work conducted by consultants which would otherwise be bargaining unit work, with a view to assessing the practicality and cost-effectiveness of having such work performed in-house by members of the OPSEU bargaining unit.

3.2 The Employer will provide the Union on an annual basis with disclosure of all existing contracts for work that could be covered under the OPSEU collective agreement. This shall include, but not be limited to, information about the contractor, the length and cost of the contract, as well as the cost of negotiating, administering and supervising the contract.

Moved by Labelle/Platt – Amendment:

The first therefore be it resolved read “that every OPSE bargaining team consider tabling the following language or modified language to ensure that our public services remain efficient, effective, accountable and transparent; and”
