Dear members and comrades,
Your bargaining team continues to negotiate with the University and is fighting hard to push for better wages, working conditions, and benefits.
On January 12, 2024, the Employer and the Union filed a joint application for conciliation to help speed up the negotiation process. We have prepared an infographic to explain the steps of the collective bargaining process, which you can consult HERE.
The application was received by the Ministry on January 29, 2024, and we had our first meeting with the conciliator on February 9, 2024. During the meeting, it became clear that, if we want a fair collective agreement, the time for showing our collective strength is NOW!
Therefore, we are calling a virtual Special General Assembly (SGA) on February 28, 2024, at 5:30 p.m. to update you about the status of negotiations and to open a vote for a strike mandate. We have prepared an information booklet about strike mandate votes, which you can consult HERE.
