Our union, along with concerned Canadians in communities across the country, has been working hard to save services and protect jobs.  We've also been using our collective agreement provisions to help members cope with the impact of budget cuts. We've negotiated those provisions, just like we've won fair wages, health and safety protections, sick leave, and all of the benefits we count on.  The improvements we've made for ourselves have helped other workers do the same, contributing to a higher standard of living for everyone.
