Can my manager reduce my pay for participating in work to rule?

Absolutely not! Work to rule is a form of strike action. As a member of this union, you have the right to participate in strike activity. Our Bargaining Team dictates the terms of ‘struck work’, and the performance of such work is analogous to the crossing of the picket line. Any direction by the employer to members not to engage in strike activity, or any threats or reprisal to members for engaging in strike activity, will be considered interference with the union and OPSEU will take any and all appropriate steps as may be required.

If you have received a message threatening discipline or loss of pay for participating in work to rule, or have been told to remove/change your signature lines/auto-responders, please let us know immediately.
