McGill Human Resources has asked Research and International Relations to relay updates on the University’s negotiations with AMURE, the union representing research associates and assistants.
Please see the following message and share the information as you deem appropriate. If you have questions, please contact Human Resources at 514-398-4747 or hr [dot] hr [at] mcgill [dot] ca.
Members of AMURE voted in overwhelming majority to ratify the tentative agreements relating to research associates and research assistants. Voting sessions were held on both the downtown and Macdonald campuses.
Both negotiation parties are satisfied with the outcome of this first collective agreement and the process of joint communications conducted throughout the talks.
The next steps will consist in having both parties review the wording of the agreements in English and French, and sign off on a final version of both. It is hoped that the signing of the collective agreements will occur before the end of April. Only once signed by both parties will the collective agreements come into effect.
