Bargaining Updates: November 5

Joint Public Message for distribution to members – November 5, 2021

Both the CAAT-A and CEC Bargaining teams have agreed to return to the bargaining table on Monday November 8. We have also agreed to schedule additional bargaining days up to and including Thursday November 11. During this time, it has been agreed that there will be a communications blackout and the teams will not be issuing any further information until 6:00pm on Nov 11 or at an earlier time if both parties agree.  We are eager to return to discussions that foster a focused, frank, and productive dialogue.  We are committed to negotiating a settlement and securing labour stability for students and all members of the college community.

In solidarity,
JP, Jonathan, Katie, Michelle, Ravi, Rebecca, Shawn



Proposals and Bulletins

Your bargaining team has shared all of their non-monetary proposals including draft contract language. The union’s proposals are rooted in feedback from consultations with faculty and students; existing best practices in our system and in other post-secondary education (PSE) institutions; model language from and discussions with Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) and other PSE leaders; and through review of both the language proposed by the locals this round, along with language that has been tabled previously. It is all backed by research and bolstered by the findings in the updated Report on Education.
