Right to Information

You have a right to know!

If you are a representative of your union, you have an absolute right to information about your worksite. Under the federal law, an employer must make every effort to supply the union with any and all documents, data and facts it deems relevant for contract bargaining or grievances. Any information that might be relevant or even lead to the identification of something relevant must be supplied.

The following is a list of some of the information that representatives of the union have a right to demand from employers:
  • Accident reports
  • Attendance records
  • Customer complaints
  • Disciplinary records
  • Employer manuals, guidelines and policies (including internal policies)

  • Investigative reports
  • Investigatory files
  • Job descriptions
  • Memos
  • Payroll records
  • Personnel files
  • Schedules
  • Seniority lists
