News Update – Tentative Agreement and Ongoing Strike Mandate Vote

Important points of information for our members and the University of Ottawa community regarding a tentative agreement with the employer and our ongoing strike mandate vote:

On a Tentative Agreement

The APTPUO reached a tentative agreement with the University of Ottawa in bargaining for a new collective agreement this afternoon, January 28, 2019.

We will soon announce the date for a special general meeting where the proposed terms will be described and where members will be able to vote on the agreement as a whole.

Details of the tentative agreement will not be made public until both the University’s Executive Committee of the Board of Governors and the APTPUO membership approve it.

The Strike Mandate Vote Continues

Despite coming to a tentative agreement, our strike vote is still happening and will continue January 29, from 10AM to 8PM in the APTPUO office, located in the University Centre, room 106.

A strong strike mandate remains a good bargaining tool and we encourage all of our members to cast their ballot and help empower their bargaining committee.

In solidarity,
