Negotiations Bulletin – August 26

The latest Negotiations Bulletin from the bargaining team can be found here and has been posted on the Bargaining 2021 page.

The bulletin offers a recap of our most recent three days of bargaining, including the College Employer Council’s disappointing proposal for a workload task force, as well as its response to the Union’s proposals around equity and the Counsellor class definitions.

The bulletin also highlights areas (of both the Collective Agreement and the Colleges) that we believe may be targeted for concessions by the Employer’s bargaining team in upcoming bargaining dates. These areas include but are not limited to fundamental notions of the teaching day and the academic year.

The bulletin also includes a current snapshot of the massive financial surpluses reported by colleges throughout the system.
