At the December 4, 2013 meeting, the university presented a proposal on weekend operations in dining services. The union had several questions relating to operational parameters and the advantages union membership would gain with the changes contemplated by the university. Some questions were raised in relation to benefits and pension which, after consultation, the University was able to answer. The union took the proposal under consideration and asked for more time to analyse and discuss it at next meeting, on December 11.
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).
