The University submitted to AMURE (Association of McGill University Research Employees/Public Service Alliance of Canada) the latest version of the articles on posting, appointments and reappointments, and on probationary period. The two bilingual documents include suggested changes from the union. Texts applicable to associates and assistants will be reviewed by the union and should be ratified at the next meeting, set for September 19.
Following the tentative agreement reached at the previous meeting, the University presented proposed language on the topics of layoffs, end of contracts and recalls of research associates and assistants. This proposal led to discussions on the interpretation of the texts and to the exchange of each party’s counter proposals. No agreement was reached and these topics will be on the agenda of next meeting.
