8. Unionized Employees

If you belong to a union, your collective agreement will define your rights when you lose your job. It will most likely define how much notice you should get, whether you have bumping rights (bumping someone more junior so that you can stay working), your right to keep your benefits, entitlements to counseling, and other rights.

Your local union shop steward will help you understand your collective agreement and direct you to a lawyer approved by your union – usually the lawyer that helped the union negotiate the collective agreement.

When preparing to meet your lawyer, you can use the database at FiredWithoutCause.com to compare your situation to what you would get if you did not have a collective agreement.
