Re: Bargaining Bulletin #22 – Collective Bargaining Update
The purpose of this memorandum is to provide you with an update on developments in collective bargaining at UBC.
The five-year collective agreement between the University and CUPE 116 has now been ratified by all parties, and is in full effect. A communication with regard to General Wage Increase implementation will be released shortly, and changes to collective agreement language will be communicated on the HR website and at HR forums that will be held specifically for this purpose.
We expect that the tentative agreement with CUPE 2950, as shared in Bargaining Bulletin #21, will proceed through the ratification/approval process by all parties by the end of June.
We continue to bargain with CUPE 2278.
Thank you for your interest. We will continue to provide updates as the process unfolds. An overview of collective bargaining (including information on the bargaining units) is available at http://www.hr.ubc.ca/collective-bargaining/.
