Defining the bindings in the current global map probably won't work because
local or mode maps might be overriding the bindings. The order of the
rebinding won't matter, just the order of the maps. Still, I've never
understood why the osx minor mode map seems to block bindings I make to the
global map even if it doesn't bind anything to my desired key binding. I've
always had to do (define-key osx-key-mode-map ...). There are other
possible solutions. For instance you can try what is described here:

Also, the following is generally useful (particularly for non elisp gurus):
