Bargaining for Better

, as we enter into the process of conciliation, starting Thursday. This was requested during the Province-Wide town-hall last week.

Additionally, we have offered the College Employer Council (CEC) team a blackout for those dates that we are at the bargaining table together, along with a voluntary agreement not to escalate via a no-board report or strike vote until we have exhausted attempts to reach a negotiated settlement.  We have been informed that both of these suggestions have been rejected by the CEC team, so the Faculty team continues work on a counter-proposal ahead of our Thursday meeting, which is the first scheduled meeting since Nov. 11. 

We look forward to continued negotiations throughout this process, assisted by the Ministry-appointed Conciliation Officer.
