Negotiations pause for summer break - Vol. 7, No.5

Negotiations with the administration to reach a new faculty collective agreement have continued to move forward since we last updated you in June. The process is paused now for a one-month summer break.

The tone between the two sides remains collegial. Both sides have presented all of their proposals, including initial compensation proposals, and agreement has been reached on a number of smaller articles. The last bargaining sessions took place on July 17 and 18, with mediator Greg Long present. Further meetings are scheduled for the week of August 20.

Your negotiating team is working hard to achieve the best deal possible for faculty. We will update you again later in August.
