Negotiation Update No. 7

The last negotiation meeting between MCLIU bargaining committee and the Employer representatives took place on December 5, 2018. If you recall, the Union deposited its last counter proposal on November 16 and had been waiting for the Employer’s response on our proposal which finally came on December 5 – after four negotiation sessions – and is not promising. The employer still insists upon hiring external candidates under a newly proposed category “Course Practitioners” in the School of Continuing Studies with a higher percentage without a counter guarantee to the existing Employees that they will receive work prior to hiring course practitioners.

The negotiation in the next year will resume on January 15, 2019 with the Employer. We hope the new year will bring some good news for our membership and we will be able to fight it together with more energy and commitment. Until then, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
