General Meeting and Bargaining Update

Attend your Union’s General Meeting!

The Association’s Board of Directors is calling a Special General Meeting to hold elections for a recent vacancy on the Board, as well as to inform the membership about the status of the current round of bargaining.

This meeting will be held:

Monday, July 21, 2014 at 5:30pm

Morisset (MRT) 218


A member of the Board of Directors has recently resigned. While two substitues, in accordance with Article 8.1 of the APTPUO Constitution, were elected at the November 2013 General Membership Meeting, both received an equal number of votes and both are available and interested in filling the vacancy. An election will therefore be held at the July 21 meeting.

The candidates for the election are Pascal Sergent and Pierre-Luc Landry.

The Bargaining Committee will also provide an update on progress made over the last eight months of bargaining.

The meeting will start at 17:30.

Bargaining update #3: 19 March 2014

A first bargaining session since 10 December 2013 took place on 5 March 2014. The University's Bargaining Team is now headed by Jules Carrière, Acting Associate Vice-President, Academic Affairs.

The Association submitted a few additional proposals and responded to some of the offers of the University. The next bargaining session will take place on 19 March.

Stay tuned for further updates!

CUPE 2626, representing Students Workers of the University of Ottawa, held its GA on 12 March 2014. The membership voted 97% in favour of a strike. Two bargaining sessions with
the University have to be held before the end of March. If a labour conflict occurs, this will affect the work of TAs, Markers or Proctors assigned to you. Further communications on this matter will follow soon.

In other related news, CUPE 4600, representing contract instructors (unit 2) and teaching assistants (unit 1) of Carleton University, has secured a tentative agreements for both units. The Association wishes to congratulate the bargaining teams.

OPSEU 404, representing Carleton's Campus Safety officers, could not secure such agreement before the 10 March deadline and are now on strike. The Association wishes to extend its wishes of solidarity and support to these workers.

Bargaining update #2: 20 February 2014

No bargaining session has been held since 10 December 2013, mostly because of the break for the holidays and because the University was going through a major reorganization within its Human Resources Service.

Talks will resume 5 March 2014.

The bargaining team will provide additional updates soon.
