I am writing to provide you with an update on the negotiations with NSGEU Local 81. Last week, the two teams met with the provincially-appointed conciliator. Following two days of discussions, I am pleased to inform you that we have reached a tentative agreement. NSGEU will be recommending the agreement to its members and bringing it forward for a vote in the near future. The University’s bargaining team will also be recommending the agreement to the Board of Governors. Both teams and the Conciliator worked together to reach a settlement that would serve the interest of the NSGEU members and the University.

I will update you once we have the results of the NSGEU vote. In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
