Bargaining Update – June 22, 2021

As many of you may recall, the top demand coming out of the final demand setting meeting in April was around workload.  This is an ongoing issue in our negotiations, and the conditions brought on by the pandemic, rapid expansion of online learning, microcredentials, inequality, and maximization have only heightened the need to make gains this round.  

In this video, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WmKu-DHiVk), we summarize and highlight some of the key concerns members have brought forward.

In keeping with our commitment to ongoing communication, the following consultative processes are set to occur around two key areas our members have brought forward in their demands:

Equity Seeking Group Town Hall (via Zoom) with the Bargaining Team – June 25th,  10:00 – 11:30 am

We invite faculty (Professors, Counsellors, Librarians, Instructors) from equity seeking groups from all 24 colleges, to join us in a discussion focused on the barriers to access, opportunity and resources experienced in the college system. We would like to provide space to discuss our approach in the upcoming bargaining to ensure they represent your demands. We really hope you will join us, your input is essential.
