Bargaining dates and topics

CUPE logo: Solidarity for jobs and justice!

Our Employer has had our proposal package in its entirety since late September, and we’ve presented detailed rationale for a great many of the proposals contained therein. The responses we’ve gotten back, however, have been few and far between. The ones we have received have been inadequate, as they don’t address our central concerns. This is, of course, a problem!

The more 3903ers we have in the room with us, the more the Employer understands that we’re dedicated to what we’re talking about. We have three more bargaining sessions scheduled with the Employer before the end of the semester. At each one we’ll be presenting certain proposals in detail for the first time. These meetings are open to all members of 3903, and we encourage you to attend!

  • On November 18, we will be detailing our proposals on copyright, qualifications language, class size, and a few other things.
  • On November 25, we will be defending proposals on job security, which includes proposals around conversion, Long Service Teaching Appointments (LSTAs), and what we’re calling “continuing sessional status” – a job security program for all Unit 2 members.
  • On December 2, we’ll be presenting the wages and benefits proposals.

The Bargaining Team meets in the CUPE 3903 office, 143 Atkinson Building at 1:30 p.m. before each bargaining meeting with the Employer.

For meeting dates, times and locations, please see Events.
