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

You can order printed copies in English and French.
