Working in health care is a 24-hour, 365 day-a-year operation. The majority of our members work around the clock.

 Shiftwork is a reality, but CUPE has negotiated the following collective agreement provisions to promote work-life balance and stability for our members:

  • Article 27.06 – Consecutive Days Off – obligates the employer to schedule consecutive days off rather than single ones.
  • Article 27.07 – Six (6) Consecutive Work Days – restricts employees from being scheduled to work more than six days in a row.
