Negotiation Update - August 13, 2014
The University and the USW 4120 have met on six occasions to date, most recently on August 5, 2014. With the assistance of a provincially appointed Conciliator, the parties were able to make significant progress on outstanding language issues. The parties have August 22nd and 26th scheduled to continue discussions aimed at achieving a renewal agreement. Given progress made on language, the University is now in a position to table its monetary proposal on the August 22, 2014. The University is committed to keeping all members of community up to date on the status of negotiations and will continue to provide updates. The University remains optimistic that discussions will continue to be productive, and a settlement will be achieved that is consistent with those already negotiated with its other employee groups.
