Notre meilleur moyen de défense : S'opposer à la privatisation à la table de négociations

Le présent guide donne un aperçu des questions liées à la privatisation, à la sous-traitance et au rapatriement des services à l’interne auxquelles les membres du SCFP sont confrontés. Il contient aussi des exemples de libellé provenant de diverses conventions collectives qui seront utiles pour les comités de négociation, les conseils de négociation et les conseillers syndicaux. La privatisation des emplois et des services a des conséquences négatives sur les membres du syndicat et leur communauté. En effet, le niveau de vie des travailleurs diminue et de bons emplois disparaissent. Notre meilleur moyen de défense contre la privatisation est la convention collective que nous négocions.

Our Best Line of Defence: Taking on privatization at the bargaining table

This guide gives an overview of the privatization, contracting out and contracting in issues CUPE members face – along with sample collective agreement language for local bargaining committees, bargaining councils and staff representatives. Privatizing jobs and services hurts members and the community, as workers’ living standards decline and well-paying jobs disappear. Our first line of defence against privatization is our union contract, negotiated through collective bargaining.

History RePPPeated - How public private partnerships are failing

Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) are increasingly being promoted as the solution to the shortfall in financing needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Economic infrastructure, such as railways, roads, airports and ports, but also key services such as health, education, water and electricity are being delivered through PPPs in both the global north and south. This report gives an in-depth, evidence-based analysis of the impact of 10 PPP projects that have taken place across four continents, in both developed and developing countries. These case studies build on research conducted by civil society experts in recent years and have been written by the people who often work with and around the communities affected by these projects.
