Bargaining Updates – CUPE, Local 3912 (Part-time faculty)

December 7, 2017

I am pleased to let you know that the University’s Board of Governors has voted to ratify the tentative collective agreement negotiated with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 3912 which represents part-time faculty teaching at the Mount. CUPE Local 3912 members also recently voted in favour of accepting the agreement.

I would like to thank both bargaining teams for their efforts to reach a collective agreement that will serve the interests of CUPE Local 3912 members and the University.

As always, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
