I am writing to provide you with an update on negotiations with Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 3912, which have been ongoing since April 2013. CUPE, Local 3912 represents part-time faculty teaching at the University on a contract basis.

I am pleased to report that a tentative agreement has been reached with CUPE members of the Mount. Both teams and the Conciliator worked together to reach a settlement that would serve the interests of CUPE members and the University. The University will be recommending the agreement to the Board of Governors and as we understand, CUPE has indicated they will be recommending the agreement to its members and bringing it forward for a vote in the near future.
