The parties met on June 13 and discussed in full detail the articles relating to posting, appointments/reappointments and probationary period. Discussions were fruitful and led to several exchanges of proposals between the Union and the University. These articles were agreed to with the exception of one element which will be included in the discussion on the employment termination clause.
The university will forward to the union the final French and English versions of Articles 12 (grievance), 13 (arbitration) and 14 (disciplinary measures) for review and comments; these articles will be signed at the next meeting. The union is consulting its bargaining team and will confirm the calendar of proposed dates starting August 22 and thereafter. The next bargaining sessions are confirmed for July 4 and 11.
