On Monday, March 8, the bargaining committees for the University and CUPE 3903 continued with collective bargaining aimed at achieving negotiated collective agreements for Units 1, 2 and 3. The University remains committed to the belief that reaching negotiated collective agreements within a reasonable timeframe will provide much-needed certainty and stability for the University community.

At the session, the University responded to CUPE’s Nursing proposals, including providing positive responses to CUPE’s proposals on current practice qualifications and a definition of Clinical Course Director.

The University continues to look forward to CUPE’s responses to several other Unit 1, 2 and 3 proposals that the University provided to CUPE on Feb. 16 and 18.

The parties’ discussions regarding Unit 2 matters, with a focus on job stability and equity, will continue over the coming weekend with the assistance of Mediator Chris Albertyn.
