Be aware of job posting changes
As you know, the minimum requirements presented during job postings cannot be modified without having first been agreed upon by the Association and the Employer (Article 5.5. of the Collective Agreement)
It has been brought to our attention that in many departments the minimum requirements have been unilaterally modified by the Employer without the consent of the Association. If you notice any changes in job postings, we ask that you communicate with us immediately.
Possible reimbursement of $200 for SASS accommodations
