Bargaining Update – November 17

The attached document compares the current offer of each bargaining team, as we enter into the process of conciliation, starting Thursday.

Comparison of Offers

Additionally, we have offered the College Employer Council (CEC) team a blackout for those dates that we are at the bargaining table together, along with a voluntary agreement not to escalate via a no-board report or strike vote until we have exhausted attempts to reach a negotiated settlement.  We have been informed that both of these suggestions have been rejected by the CEC team, so the Faculty team continues work on a counter-proposal ahead of our Thursday meeting, which is the first scheduled meeting since Nov. 11.

We look forward to continued negotiations throughout this process, assisted by the Ministry-appointed Conciliation Officer.
