The parties met on November 10 in the presence of the conciliator appointed by the ministère du Travail.
The employer submitted as planned a global offer that includes its proposals on the granting of McGill ID cards and the Work Study program, as well as its proposal on the various monetary elements.
The parties discussed the monetary proposal, after which the union submitted a counter-proposal on the monetary elements and the Work Study program.
The employer and the union did not manage to reach agreements on those topics and, despite the discussions, their positions remain far apart.
The conciliator asked both parties to think about their respective positions and will contact them in order to assess whether a meeting should be held as planned on November 18.
This update is meant to inform the community about ongoing negotiations and has been validated by the union.
