Librarians & Archivists: Bargaining Bulletin Vol. 6, No. 6

June 6th, 2023


Thank-you to everyone who attended the Bargaining Information session last week (May 31st), both in person and remotely. We appreciate your time, attention and input, as we work collaboratively to bargain for a strong collective agreement for all.

A copy of the slides are available in the Sync shared folder to which all Members of the Bargaining Unit have access. Please speak to a member of the CBC if you are accessing the folder for the first time. 

UWOFA and the Employer had their third bargaining meeting on June 6. All of the tabled bargaining proposals are available in the Sync shared folder.

In this session the Employer returned 3 articles with amended language for discussion – Report and Review, Promotion and Continuing Appointment, and Working Conditions: 

Annual Report and Review

  • The Parties achieved broad general agreement and have agreed in principle to most of the revisions proposed by UWOFA.   
  • The Parties continue to discuss evaluation by peer committee. UWOFA will send a survey to members to gather feedback. 

Promotion and Continuing Appointment

  • The Parties achieved broad general agreement on UWOFA’s proposed changes, including the following areas:
    • Process for an annual meeting separate from ARR meetings for members on a Probationary Appointment
    • Procedures for disposition of P&CA files
