The parties approved the English versions of articles on benefits and pensions. The French versions for both bargaining units will be reviewed at the next meeting. The university put forward a proposal on vacations, and initial discussions took place. This item will be discussed at the next meeting, set for January 21. The government-appointed conciliator assisted the parties in their discussions and will be present at the next meeting.
