Re: Bargaining Bulletin #10 – Collective Bargaining Update
The purpose of this memorandum is to provide you with an update on developments in collective bargaining at UBC.
We are pleased to report that the University bargaining team met with the CUPE 116 bargaining team on Oct. 2, 3, and 20 for three productive days of bargaining. We look forward to returning to the table with them in the coming weeks.
Bargaining continues with AAPS this Friday, Oct. 24, with the assistance of a mediator.
We have now secured bargaining dates with the CUPE 2950 bargaining team, who represent clerical and library support staff at the UBC Vancouver campus. We will commence bargaining and exchange proposals on Nov. 3, with further dates set for Nov. 17, 21, and Dec. 1.
We have also secured dates to bargain with the BCGEU, representing childcare employees at the Vancouver campus. Dates have been scheduled for Nov. 19, 20 and 21.
Dates for bargaining with CUPE 2278, representing Teaching Assistants and English as an Additional Language Instructors, as well as IUOE 882 have yet to be identified, and we look forward to sitting down with these groups in the not-too-distant future.
As a reminder, all University bargaining proposals are in line with the 2014 Economic Stability Mandate.
Thank you for your interest. We will continue to provide updates as the process unfolds.
