UWOFA heads back to the bargaining table in advance of strike deadline - Vol. 7 No. 13

A “No Board” Report has been filed with the Ontario Ministry of Labour by provincially appointed conciliator Greg Long. The UWOFA faculty bargaining unit will be in a legal strike position on Friday November 9 at 12:01 a.m., and UWOFA’s Executive Committee has established this date as our firm strike deadline. 

Talks with the employer are continuing, however. Our bargaining team heads back to the table this week, with eight negotiating sessions, five of them full day sessions, scheduled between October 30 and November 8. We remain hopeful that a deal can be reached at the table before the deadline. 

While we are doing everything we can to avert a strike, we must prepare for one nonetheless. We recognize that members will have questions about the possibility of a strike. Please click here for answers to some of those questions.
