YOUR UNION DUES

Union dues are set at a rate of 1.6% of basic salary, that is, the salary stipulated on the pay scale for your job title. APTS dues will be deducted from your pay as of the pay period following the union certification date. Any necessary adjustments will subsequently be made with employees.


TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE APTS

Being unionized with the APTS gives you access to a host of services (advocacy services to defend your rights and counselling services, particularly for pension and insurance matters). However, to take part in union decision-making and have access to our members-only section of the website, you have to fill out, print and sign the MEMBERSHIP FORM (PDF).

Then you have to send it to the APTS:
• by e-mail: adhesion@aptsq.com
• by regular mail: APTS - adhésions, 1111, rue Saint-Charles Ouest, Bureau 1050, Longueuil, Québec, J4K 5G4
• via one of your union reps.

NOTE: Your employer has already deducted $2.00 from your pay as first dues, so you don’t have to pay that amount despite what it says on the APTS membership form.


THE APTS IN YOUR WORKPLACE

We invite you to check the union bulletin boards in your workplace to find out the date and location of our next meetings and activities. We’ll be convening you to a meeting soon to discuss the issues that concern you in your work. In the meantime, you can also follow the APTS Facebook page in your institution.

EXPERTISE/

IN LABOUR RELATIONS

The APTS offers you a thorough defence on all questions related to the work sphere. Its union counsellors have expertise that is directly related to your particular work. Regardless of the size or location of your work facilities, you are ensured the same support and the same top-quality services.  

DEMOCRATIC UNION LIFE/

The people who represent you come from a profession like yours. In your institution, the union team that you have elected is there to welcome you, support you and answer your questions about your working conditions. Your representatives take part in decisions at all levels of the APTS, and thus have an opportunity to highlight your concerns at large provincial meetings and in specific committees.

NEGOTIATIONS AND PAY EQUITY/

The APTS invites you to participate every step of the way in contract talks – from developing demands specific to your professions to engaging in actions to tip the scales in favour of the union side. Given its experience and its grasp of your concerns, the APTS is the union that’s best equipped to represent you.

DIRECT SERVICES /

Your union offers you the best direct services in all regions of Québec. The elected officers in your region represent you and support you on a day-to-day basis.

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT/

Training and professional development are a priority for the APTS, unlike the employers, who devote few resources to such activities. The APTS sees to it that the given budgets are fully utilized and that training programs are carefully selected to address your needs.

PART OF ASOLIDARITY-BASED MOVEMENT/

At the APTS, three areas of sociopolitical action take priority: defending public services, fighting poverty and promoting women’s rights. Given the importance of uniting progressive forces, the APTS belongs to various broad-based coalitions that share its concerns.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT/

The TAT administrative labour tribunal has set the dates: you’ll be called on to vote from January 30 to February 24, 2017 to elect the union you want to represent you in the new bargaining units. SEE MORE >>>
