Employee Relations Committee

The Alberta Union of Provincial Employees (AUPE) and the Government of Alberta (Employer) established a joint Local 005 Employee Relations Committee (ERC) to discuss and advise matters of mutual interest relating to employees covered by the Natural Resources Conservation Services, Subsidiary Agreement 005 and the collective Master Agreement. The committee contains equal membership representation and is co-chaired by both parties. The members of the committee must approve all recommendations and if accepted by both the Employer and AUPE may be implemented by mutual agreement.

Five Local 005 members are appointed to represent the local from each of the resource management branches and divisions consisting of Wildfire, Forest, Land, Fish and Wildlife and Parks and Recreation.
The ERC meets twice per year to discuss GOA policy and procedural issue(s) brought forward by our membership seeking clarification or ruling(s) to those issue(s) under discussion with resource management representatives.

If a Local 005 member comes across a worksite situation or a matter that may require discussion or clarification by the ERC, members are encouraged to engage with their local chapters and resource representatives, listed below, and fill out the supplied ERC Member Complaint document found under ERC documents.
