Re: Bargaining Bulletin #23 – Collective Bargaining Update
The purpose of this memorandum is to provide you with an update on developments in collective bargaining at UBC.
Members of CUPE 2950 have ratified the tentative agreement with the University, voting 79% in favour. We anticipate that the University will complete the ratification process by the end of this month.
We have been at the bargaining table with CUPE 2278 for two days this week, and are seeking more dates during the week of July 6. Conversation at the table is proceeding well with both CUPE 2278 components (Teaching assistants, tutors and markers, as well as English as an Additional Language instructors).
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/.
