Newsletter 46 - Collective Agreement, Hiring Report and Keep Education Public

The new 2013-2016 Collective Agreement has been ratified.

On September 24 and 25, 2014, APTPUO members voted in favour of the new agreement with 89.6%.

The implementation of the new Agreement will take place over the next 90 days. The 2013-2016 Collective Agreement begins September 2013, and therefore members will receive retroactive pay for working during the 2013-14 academic year.
In the coming weeks, the Association will continue to update the APTPUO website to ensure that all information is up to date and accessible to members. Signed articles and a summary of changes are now available on our website.


Hiring Report

The Fall 2014 Hiring Report will be available soon. You will be able to access the report via the Human Resources Service Website

If you applied unsuccessfully for a course, you can review the report and the successful candidates' category and seniority points.

If you believe the hiring process was not respected according to Article 5 of the Collective Agreement, or if you would like to know the reasons behind the hiring decision, you will need to contact your director, in writing, before the end of October 2014.

Late October 2014 is the deadline to request information, and if necessary launch a grievance, regarding hiring decisions for the Fall 2014 session.

If you have any other questions regarding the hiring report and the grievance process, visit “Posting, Hiring, and General Applications” section on our website or you can contact us directly.
