STATEMENT OF EQUALITY TREATY NO. 8 1899

This meeting will occur on Treaty No. Territory, and in the homeland of the Metis Nation. This SGEU meeting/event will be held in a harassment-free environment, meaning our comments and actions must reflect the union’s goal of zero tolerance. Harassment is any behaviour that undermines the dignity, self-esteem, or security of an individual, or creates an intimidating, threatening, hostile, or offensive environment. Our Union will not tolerate racism, ageism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, cissexism, heterosexism, and other forms of harassment which violate a member’s right to be treated with dignity and respect.

Introduction to the Role of a Steward Respectful Workplace Know Your Collective Agreement Steward Training: Grievances Steward Training: Conflict Resolution Steward Training: Collective Bargaining Agreements Third Level Steward Training Ombudsmun Training Unionism on Turtle Island

Leadership Development 10 This course introduces you to the role of a union steward within your workplace and SGEU. You will become familiar with the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), develop skills in problem-solving and gain confidence in your ability to become a Steward in your workplace.

Leadership Development 11 The Respectful Workplace course introduces the concept of a respectful workplace and describes both appropriate and inappropriate workplace attitudes and behaviours. The course explains how Saskatchewan’s recently amended Occupational Health & Safety Act addresses the issue of personal harassment (Bullying), identifies behaviours that meet the OHSA definitions of personal harassment and describes how to respond appropriately to situations involving bullying or harassment.

59


Leadership Development 12 A collective agreement is a contract of employment between an employer and a trade union. It is a legal and binding document. It is the responsibility of the steward to know the terms and conditions of the collective agreement and ensure they are respected. Participants are introduced to the language of their collective agreement and develop an ability to locate the information they need within it.

Leadership Development 20 (A,B,C) The participant will practice problem-solving techniques, and prepare and present a grievance at Step 1. They will explore concepts such as “the duty of fair representation” and “support for a representative workforce.” Participants will also continue to build on their investigation and response skills, enabling them to respond to members’ concerns in a timely fashion. A, B, C can be taken in any order after completion of Leadership Development 10.

Leadership Development 30 As an SGEU steward, the union has empowered you to serve as a protector of the rights of our members. Standing in solidarity with SGEU, you will help us succeed in our efforts to enrich the lives of the working people within the workforce.

Preamble Unions today play a vital role in the improvement of living and working conditions of all Canadians. Much of our present standard of living and many of the social benefits we enjoy have come about from organizing and educational work done by our predecessors in the union movement. Trade unions are the legitimate voice of Canadian workers. In this context, trade unions have had an extremely difficult and controversial role in today’s society. As such, unions are subject to more scrutiny on actions taken by our elected officers than any other democratic organizations. Officers of this Union have a responsibility to protect the members’ rights and promote solidarity by keeping the membership informed and united. SGEU expects a high standard of conduct of its elected officials and in return will, at all times, support and protect them in the performance of the duties of their office. SGEU commits to elected officials (including stewards) to take swift action when they face retaliation or harassment. In order to ensure that these standards are upheld, SGEU has adopted the following standards that are expected of all its elected officials.

Policy All Elected Officers shall be elected or appointed as provided for in the sector bylaws and the Constitution of the Saskatchewan Government and General Employees’ Union and shall accept the Oath of Office as provided for in the SGEU Constitution.

All Elected Officers Shall: 1. In all aspects of Union activity, conduct themselves in accordance with Union Policy and in a manner which reflects well on SGEU and its membership. 2. Become knowledgeable in the internal structure of the Union and the applicable collective agreement. 3. Enforce the collective agreements of the various bargaining units in SGEU and shall not accept less than the negotiated provisions for the members. 4. At all times represent the members without personal bias or discrimination and observe confidentiality when dealing with sensitive matters regarding membership servicing. 5. Attend all functions, meetings and educational events when called upon by the Union, as directed by the Bylaws and Constitution. 6. Reflect the official Union policy at all times when dealing with management. Co-chairpersons of Occupational Health & Safety Committees and the membership of any other committees sanctioned by the Union shall be elected. 7. Not participate in management committees other than those sanctioned by the Union, irrespective of the name or intention of said committees.

Code of Ethics

CODE OF ETHICS FOR ELECTED OFFICIALS OF SGEU


SGEU STATEMENT OF EQUALITY

8. Discharge their duties in the best interests of the membership, without consideration for personal gain, and shall refuse all gifts, gratuities, favours or other considerations, which might be perceived to influence decisions on Union policy.

Unions were formed and developed historically on the basic principle of fighting for equal treatment for all members in the union based on collective action. This basic goal has not changed.

9. Shall administer the records and assets of the Union in a responsible manner, consistent with the Union’s policy as developed from time to time. 10. Shall work at all times within the Union structure when expressing disagreements or criticisms about the internal workings or policy of the Union, other Union members or the paid staff of the Union. 11. Take swift action when they become aware of incidents of retaliation and harassment experienced by other elected officials and, if they themselves face harassment, report it to a designated representative. Failure to comply with these rules of conduct will be grounds for disciplinary action as provided for in the SGEU Constitution. Approved by the SGEU Convention, May 1983 Amended by the SGEU Convention, June 1998 Amended by the SGEU Convention, April 2009

The most effective tool to attain our goal of equality is the elimination of racism, ageism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, cissexism, heterosexism and other forms of personal harassment. Ableism is defined as discrimination toward a person based on a physical or mental disability. These cruel and discriminatory forms of behaviour weaken the union. All too often members of our union are perpetrators as well as victims. This destructive behaviour must stop. The practice of any form of harassment by anyone negates our ability to achieve equality and stands in stark contrast to everything positive that unions have come to represent. By practicing or allowing racism, ageism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, cissexism, heterosexism and other forms of harassment in our union meetings/events, work-places or communities, we weaken ourselves and our union’s ability to be a vehicle for social justice.

Definition of Harassment Harassment can be defined as any unwelcome or unwanted action by any person against another. It can be a verbal or physical action on a single or repeated basis, which intimidates, humiliates, insults, degrades or threatens. 68

Harassment

CODE OF ETHICS continued


“Unwelcome” or “unwanted” means any action(s) which the harasser knows or ought reasonably to know are not desired. Harassment is an inappropriate expression of real or perceived power or superiority by the harasser(s) over another person(s).

Harassment at SGEU Meetings or Events At the commencement of each meeting/event one or more Ombudsmun will be designated and identified. The mandate of the Ombudsmun will be to deal with informal complaints of harassment. To stop harassment we must make every effort to act as quickly as possible to challenge and stop offensive behaviour. If it happens to you, take responsibility ... If possible, tell the person(s) how you feel. Be specific. Say you want the behaviour to stop and try to find a solution. Don’t blame yourself. Each person is responsible for his/her own actions. Tell the Ombudsmun. Every effort will be made to ensure confidentiality. The Ombudsmun will assist you with the informal process. Every effort will be made to deal with complaints prior to the conclusion of the event. If unresolved, the Ombudsmun may recommend that the person file a formal complaint and submit it directly to the President, Secretary/Treasurer, Director of HR and Operations and/or the Membership, Constitution and Legislation (MC&L) Committee Chairperson. 70

Harassment

STATEMENT OF EQUALITY continued

If you are accused of harassment, take responsibility… Stop the actions, comments or offending behaviour immediately. Each person is responsible for his/her own actions. Try to resolve the issue. If you take positive action to correct your behaviour, you may want to keep a record of the steps you took. If the Ombudsmun is involved, he/she will assist you with the informal process. Every effort will be made to deal with complaints prior to the conclusion of the event. If unresolved, a formal complaint may be filed against you with the President, Secretary/Treasurer, Director of HR and Operations and/or the MC&L Chairperson.

Harassment in Our Workplaces All bargaining units should negotiate anti-harassment clauses in their Collective Agreements, including: • Mechanisms to resolve disputes; • Protection for the complainant; and • Education awareness sessions on harassment for everyone in the workplace.

Harassment in Our Communities We can challenge harassment and discrimination in society at large. We have an obligation to fight for equal rights for all people by lobbying for legislative changes and working with other unions and organizations to challenge discrimination.

OUR GOAL MUST BE ZERO TOLERANCE! Adopted by SGEU Convention June 1992; Revised June 1996, December 2002, June 2006, June 2007, May 2016

WHAT ARE MY UNION DUES DOING FOR ME? As a full-time worker, I’m earning 23% more than my non-union brothers and sisters.*

When my spouse or children need dental work, my dental plan pays the bill.

When I’m ill, I have paid sick leave so I don’t have to worry how I’ll pay my bills.

If someone in my family dies, I have paid bereavement leave.

I will have a pension when I retire.

If my job is abolished, I have bumping rights or I will receive severance pay.

When I’m treated unfairly at work, my union will represent me.

When our collective agreement is ignored or when our governments bring in legislation that takes away social benefits for workers and the unemployed, I know that my union will fight for justice.

Not only do my union dues deliver all of this and more, they are tax-deductible, too.
