Please note:  POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN JANUARY 31, 2018.
                        Late applications will not be accepted.

ATU SCHOLARSHIP 2017-2018 is in memory of Thomas Clement "Tommy" Douglas.

Tommy Douglas
Passed away on February 24, 1986, a Baptist Minister and champion boxer, he left the pulpit for a political platform.  A powerful orator and tireless activist, he was elected to serve as a member of Saskatchewan's Parliament, and later, Premier of the province - an office he held for 17 years. He introduced the continent's first single-payer, Universal health care program, a program that would eventually be adopted across Canada.

We hope the recipients of this year's scholarship, named in his honor, will use them in part to study union and community organizing, and grow to fight injustices everywhere.

This year, the program will consist of five scholarships each in the amount of $8000. In addition, a $2000, scholarship may be awarded to a technical or vocational school applicant.

All deadlines will be strictly enforced.

POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN JANUARY 31, 2018.

From Winnipeg, MB, to Washington, DC to Kelowna, BC, to San Francisco, CA assaults on ATU members and all transit workers have become an epidemic. Not a week goes by that we don’t hear stories about bus operators and other transit workers being punched, stabbed, yelled at, spit on, shot at, and worse. ATU is calling on transit agencies, law enforcement, and elected officials to better protect all transit workers and riders.

Your Rights as a Union Member

One day while looking through our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) or “contract” researching an issue on behalf of both a member and the Union, I was suddenly struck by a thought. When I address an issue I still have to refer back to the contract, a lot of which I have helped negotiate over quite a few years. Then I thought; we have so many new members that have joined our ranks and for many this is the first time they have ever been affiliated with a Union and may have no idea what a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) or “contract” is, and how it affects their working conditions and the many benefits they are receiving.

Waiver of Union Representation: If you choose “not” to have Union representation during an investigatory or disciplinary meeting, you “do not” have to sign a form stating your choice not to, or write on the disciplinary document that you chose not to. As a matter of fact you “do not” have to sign a letter of disciplinary action. The “second” manager in the room (as there always is during an investigatory or disciplinary meeting) can sign in your place.

************************************************************************************************

WEINGARTEN RIGHTS
If this is an investigatory discussion which could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, I respectfully request that my Union Representative, Officer or Steward be present at this meeting.  Without representation present, I choose not to answer any questions.
