CUPE has produced a new resource to help locals fight privatization through their collective agreements.
Our best line of defence – Taking on privatization at the bargaining table gives an overview of privatization issues, and highlights sample contract language that protects jobs and public services.
The guide has four sections:
- Getting ahead of privatization: notice, disclosure and consultation
- Preventing privatization: language on contracting out
- Reversing privatization: contracting in language
- Protecting benefits from privatization or delisting
