On September 22, 2020, the parties met to exchange non-monetary proposals for the renewal of the collective agreement for non-academic casuals. The collective agreement expired on May 31, 2020.

- Disciplinary measures;
- Employee files;
- Probationary period;
- Posting and Granting of Assignments;

Discussions with respect to paid holidays, social leaves and sick leave are progressing and we expect to finalize discussions shortly. The Union has also presented its monetary proposal and McGill is expected to respond to the Union’s proposal in the coming weeks.
