Educate. Defend. Mobilize.CUPE provides local unions with an HIV/AIDS bargaining checklist. It is a valuable resource for bargaining committees, members and activists to support those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS.

Unions have an important role to play in advancing the rights of people dealing with the health, economic and social impacts of HIV/AIDS in the workplace.

The bargaining checklist provides areas of the collective agreements where we can include and strengthen language, notably:

  • Anti-discrimination, anti-harassment and anti-violence
  • Confidentiality, privacy and testing
  • Worker health and safety
  • Duty to accommodate
  • Medical and health benefits
  • Pensions
  • Leave provisions
