The university met with AMUSE/PSAC non-academic casuals on May 19 where the parties presented their respective set of proposals. Both sides’ bargaining committees were present for the start of negotiations. The parties also discussed how the bargaining process should unfold and agreed on a shared communications approach following each bargaining session. The parties later agreed on four dates for bargaining sessions leading up to mid-July.
AMUSE/PSAC will be negotiating their second collective agreement. Their first three-year contract expired in April 2015. The union was certified in January 2010.
