As per our brief email last week, the Arbitrator awarded our final contract and as of last Wednesday, it is officially in effect. It has been a long road to get here, and this is a big cause for celebration!!
Attached to this post you will find a PDF contract information kit, including a short “highlights package”, as well as the full language of the contract in its entirety. We encourage you all to read it, especially if you haven’t been with us since the beginning, and may have missed some pieces of information.
Since there are likely to be many questions, we invite you all attend one of our two Q&A sessions:
When: Tuesday, February 5, 2019
Meeting 1: 12pm-1pm
Meeting 2: 4pm-5pm
Location: GSA commons
In the meantime, we will be working with the University HR on a timeline to implement new benefits and rights that are contained in this contract, including extended health and dental benefits, salary increases, and EI and CPP obligations. If you have urgent questions or concerns, please reach out to us at PSAC40004@gmail.com.
A huge thank you to everyone for their support in this, and to the members of the bargaining team, past and present. You are all amazing.
