We believe you are the backbone of our organization and the work to which we are committed. Your well-being has always been and always will be our first priority. We pride ourselves on our responsiveness to your needs, and we are concerned for the impact that a union might have on our relationship. Your managers and the Human Resources team will always work with you to help to navigate whatever’s going on in your lives, assist you to make changes to your role to meet your desires and needs, or aid you to switch to a different position altogether when opportunity or need arises.

If a union is ultimately voted in as the exclusive bargaining representative for CIS staff, each individual employee will lose the right to deal directly with HR and their manager about wages, benefits and work conditions, ceding that right to a union. If a union is elected, CIS can deal only with the union about those issues.  As an organization whose very mission is built on helping individuals exercise more agency, freedom, and choice, this concerns us deeply.

Whether or not you choose to vote for a union, we want you to know that now, as always, we support you entirely, and we are here for you.
