On September 30 and October 3, the bargaining team had the opportunity to meet with over 1,600 college faculty provincewide, during Zoom Town Halls. During those meetings, we discussed the Kaplan award that will form our new Collective Agreement. We also had the chance to answer many questions from participants, although there were more questions than we had time to answer during the meetings.
We are sharing an FAQ about our new Collective Agreement, based on your questions at the Town Halls. It was an amazing opportunity to join our engaged membership yet again, as we acknowledge our collective accomplishments in this round of bargaining, which we achieved by insisting on changes that we, our colleagues, and our students need — all in the face of an employer who sought to extract concessions and weaken the rights and workload protections in our Collective Agreement.
We invite you to read this and also the Bargaining Bulletin at https://opseu.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/2022-09-CAAT-A-bulletin_eng-a.pdf. If you have any further questions, we invite you to reach out to your Local President.
Yours in solidarity,
The CAAT-A Bargaining Team
