The purpose of union-management consultation is to facilitate communication on issues relevant to the workplace. The aim is to build a spirit of co-operation and mutual trust between management and employee representatives through the exchange of information.
The Consultation Committee provides a forum for senior management and UTE National Officers to meet and exchange information about policies, programs and working conditions.
The Joint National Union-Management Consultation Committee has established the following sub-committees:
- National Consultation Committee on Technological Change
- National Health and Safety Policy Committee. In 2000, there was an amendment to Part II of the Canada Labour Code, which mandates the creation of a National Health and Safety Policy Committee.
Meaningful consultation at the regional and local levels is essential as most decisions affecting working conditions are implemented in all workplaces.
