NSGEU Employee Relations Officers (EROs)

Under the leadership of the Executive Director, the Director of Negotiations and Servicing, and Servicing Coordinators, NSGEU EROs provide direct assistance and support to each of the union’s locals.

EROs serve as locals’ chief negotiators during bargaining. They help enforce the provisions of local’s collective agreements through consultation, negotiation, mediation and, when those tactics fail, formal grievance. During grievance proceedings, EROs help members through the arbitration/adjudication procedures, sometimes with the assistance of expert legal advice.

Each ERO is assigned to one or more locals. These assignments change from time to time.

Click here for an up-to-date list of EROs and the locals to which they are assigned.
