The parties met on December 11, 2013, the last bargaining session of 2013. The union commented on the university’s proposal on week-end operations in food and dining services. The union was not in favor of proceeding with the proposed changes and suggested to put this subject aside and possibly discuss this when the parties address monetary issues. The union presented its proposal relating to uniforms and safety shoes for the 3 bargaining units. The university asked several questions to clearly understand union’s proposal and will provide comments on January 15, 2014, the first bargaining session of the year.
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).
