The answer is „NO.“ The law says you have the right to join a union. In the National Labor Relations Act, Section 7, „Workers have the right to organize themselves, join or assist labour organizations, to collectively negotiate representatives of their choice and to engage in other concerted activities for collective bargaining or other mutual assistance or protection actions, and they also have the right to waive or any such activity, unless that right may be affected by an agreement requiring membership in a labour organization as a condition of employment within the meaning of Section 8 A( (3) of this title. As a member of the SPFPA™, your „employment rights“ come from a number of different sources, not just the collective agreement. You and your collaborators have other rights, including rights in: SPFPA™ Health and Welfare is a Blue Cross/Blue Shield program that includes a variety of affordable plan options including hospitalizations, medical visits, important medical options, networked and off-network, subs prescription drugs, dentist, vision, long-term and short-term disability. SPFPA™ members can compare the costs of the SPFPA™ performance plan with the company-sponsored benefits at the time of collective bargaining. Benefits Specialists meet and explain the options available, support and respond. The CFPS™ does not make money to provide services to members, but we believe it is important to provide plans to our members and their families as a service. The McNamara-O`Hara Service Contract Act (SCA) The Act requires contractors and subcontractors who provide services with quality contracts of more than $2,500 to pay service employees in different classes, no less than the wages and ancillary benefits that prevail in the locality or the rates (including future increases) included in the collective agreement of a previous contract. The Ministry of Labour stops contract wage fixings in response to specific requests from contract agencies.
These provisions are incorporated into the treaty. Collective bargaining is the process in which the UNION and the company negotiate the terms of your employment. The law stipulates that the management of the company must negotiate in good faith on wages, benefits, working conditions and job security, which are subjects of negotiation. The collective bargaining process is important to you because it provides you and your fellow officers with a „voice“ in matters that concern you and your families. Once a collective agreement (CBA) is ratified, the union can apply the terms of the contract and protect your well-being. A CBA is one of the many benefits of membership in the SPFPA™, with the ability to achieve accumulative CBA improvements over the years. SPFPA™ has been awarded the title of security union authority across the country and has a proven track record at the negotiating table with full-time and experienced negotiators and full-time legal advisors to support the improvements you certainly deserve.
