Training and recruiting bargaining proposal advocates
In order for mental health considerations to stay top of mind as we head into negotiations, it’s important to include those who have a good understanding and appreciation for what’s at stake. Here’s how:
- Educate those who are elected to the Bargaining Committee about the connections between our mental health and the workplace, The Standard, and building mental health protection and promotion into our collective agreements.
- Encourage those who live with mental illness, or care for someone who does, to be on the Bargaining Committees.
- Encourage those who live with mental illness, or care for someone who does, to develop and put forward bargaining proposals that the Bargaining Committee can bring forward to the employer during negotiations.
