At the February 4 session with SEU (facilities), the parties started discussing how to approach negotiating wages. The university accepted to present a detailed proposal on what the approach would resemble at the next meeting, set for February 10.
On February 10, the University presented a financial proposal which led to some discussion between the parties. The discussions were interrupted due to the forced absence of three committee members who had to attend the emergency situation caused by the fire at RVC residence. Discussions will continue on this topic at upcoming meetings, scheduled for February 24 and 25.
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).
