Select two actual collective agreements available online (just search â€˜collective agreementsâ€™). The two collective agreements must have been signed in Canada, and they must come from different unions, employers and provinces. Examine the contents of each agreement. Write a short paragraph (100-150 words) on each of the following clauses: (1) management rights; (2) union-security; (3) seniority; (4) contracting-out; and (5) grievance procedures. Submission deadline is Monday of week 10.
You are to compare the provisions in the two collective agreements. How different are they? Do they have any common features? Are they consistent with the information available in your text?
Before you begin, you must identify the union, the employer and the bargaining unit involved in each collective agreement. You should also note the date and the jurisdiction where the agreement was signed
