Floor Fellows, represented by AMUSE, held a special general assembly on April 13, 2017 during which members voted to approve the proposed collective agreement. This is a positive and important milestone; the Union and the University look forward to receiving final approvals from individuals with pending claims before the CNESST, and from the CNESST itself.
In the coming weeks, the University and Union will work together to finalize the text of this first collective agreement, and to prepare for its implementation in fall 2017. Further communications will follow once all the conditions of this agreement are accepted by all parties.
This update is meant to inform the community about ongoing negotiations and has been validated by the Union.
