The PSA received 4 great applications for the $1,500.00 Young Professionals On Board program sponsorship opportunity which were reviewed and voted on by the PSA Executive.

Identifying information was removed from the applications to make them as anonymous as possible.  The majority votes were in favour of the application submitted by Rattan Gill.

Congratulations Rattan, we look forward to hearing about your learning experience with this program.

 

We are pleased to announce that an overwhelming majority (95%) of today's Ratification Meeting voting member attendees, voted to accept the draft agreement with the University as presented. 

This agreement calls for increases of 1% per year for three years, an increase in the merit allocation to $1,300 per capita in year three, confirmation of another 1% to be received on or about July 1, 2021 to offset pension premium increases and numerous other changes which will benefit all P&M group employees.

Both the PowerPoint presentation and the draft agreement can be accessed from the Members section of the PSA website by log-in.

The next step is for the University to have the draft agreement ratified by the Board. Once fully ratified, the agreement will also be posted to the HR website under employee agreements.
