The Labour Relations team is getting ready to start negotiations with PSAC/MUNACA for the renewal of their collective agreement which expires on November 30, 2015.
A letter was sent to MUNACA/PSAC last week inviting them to start negotiations as soon as June 16. The university has offered to engage in intensive negotiations during the summer in order to reach an agreement before the current contract expires in November.
A tentative schedule has been submitted to the union in the hopes that both parties can establish a series of meeting dates during the summer months. Preliminary discussions have taken place with the executive of MUNACA and PSAC who expressed openness to considering this proposal.
The university looks forward to a positive response from the union on this proposal.
