At the November 20, 2013 bargaining session, the parties discussed the university’s presentation on weekend operations in dining services, which includes the evolution of the financial situation in that unit over the last four years. It also shows information on the various food plans offered to students and outlines information on revenues and expenses. The university also shared information on compensation parameters in comparable units in the Montreal area.
After discussions between the parties, it was agreed that the university would prepare a more detailed proposal relating to contemplated changes to improve the cost effectiveness of weekend operations. This presentation will be made at next meeting, scheduled for December 4th.
The 3 bargaining units in question are: computing centre, printing services and facilities management/residences/Faculty Club, represented by SEU (Service Employees Union, local section 800, affiliated with the Quebec Labour Federation).
