The employer ratified our new collective agreement on Friday
In all, the four-year settlement includes the 2013 wage reopener retroactively and a new three-year collective agreement that runs from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2017.
While both sides have agreed not to discuss in public the details of the new collective agreement, we can say that it follows the pattern of previous settlements in the post-secondary sector, which are modeled on the settlement reached earlier this year between the Government of Alberta and its front-line employees.
Copies of the new collective agreement will be made available to members of the bargaining unit after both sides have proofread it and signed off on any corrections. This process may take several weeks.
Your bargaining committee thanks all members for your continued support and solidarity throughout this process.
