Under a provincial agreement signed on June 6th between the government and the FSSS, all people hired to fight COVID-19 are employees as per our collective agreement and, therefore, they are union members.
These individuals must pay union dues as of May 24, 2020. This agreement is provincial and includes all unions affiliated with the FSSS.
The agreement also provides that newly hired employees are eligible for RREGOP, the pension fund for employees in the healthcare sector.
In other words, these people have the same rights as all health care personnel and this is of paramount importance for them. Their working conditions, starting with their health and safety, are therefore protected and we can intervene with management on their behalf.
Welcome to our union organization.
Your union is the McGill University Health Center employee’s union (MUHCEU).
No matter where you work, the Glen site, the Montreal General Hospital or other, we have union offices in these establishments and you will find Union delegates who can answer your questions.
We’re here for you.
