Re: Bargaining Bulletin #14 – Collective Bargaining 2010/11 Update
The purpose of this memorandum is to provide you with an update on developments in collective bargaining at UBC. An overview of collective bargaining (including information on the bargaining units) is available online.
Last week on Nov. 9, the University reached a tentative agreement with BCGEU, representing unionized child care staff at the Vancouver campus. The agreement, which is consistent with the Provincial Government’s Mandate 2010 (http://www.pssg.gov.bc.ca/psec/bargaining/index.htm) is for the period from May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2012. It is now in the ratification/approval processes of both parties and is expected to be completed early next month.
Thank you for your interest. We will keep you apprised of developments as they occur.
