The bargaining team was hard at work in a mediation meeting with the employer yesterday, Sunday, August 28. Despite having made some progress, we were not able to reach an agreement. The parties have agreed to continue mediation on September 22.
In the meantime, we will continue to negotiate for both the Toronto-Windsor and the OLBI units. We have also asked the employer to continue bargaining without the presence of a mediator, but we have not received a response from the employer.
We will keep you informed of further progress at the bargaining table. For the time being, the Bargaining Committee is considering a normal start to the academic year.
