August Update on Bargaining for Sessional Academic Workers (Unit 2)

The Bargaining Committee negotiating the Sessional Academic Worker (Unit 2) Collective Agreement has been meeting with the Human Resources Staff Relations Officer and their bargaining team regularly throughout the spring and summer months.  Because of the constant and direct dialogue, both committees have had the opportunity to exchange information and solve issues that have come up during the course of negotiations.  Many of these revolve around posting and hiring practices and have resulted in satisfactory resolutions for our members.

The CUPE 3909 Bargaining Committee went into these negotiations committed to make improvements based on an exhaustive survey of the members.  We have been working hard to recreate a collective agreement that is clear, concise, transparent, and fair.  We hope that soon we will have a document to present to the members and that you will be pleased with the changes.
