Important Announcements

Grievance and Arbitration Victories

The Association continues to defend the rights of its members on a daily basis. At the Annual General Meeting last November, the Association spoke about around twenty partial or total victories within the grievance process throughout the 2014 year. The vast majority of these files touch on the lack of respect of the Employer in relation to the hiring process.

Since that General Assembly, the Association has been successful in an additional three cases, all pertaining to the hiring process.

For two of the cases, the members will receive financial compensation and one seniority point for the courses they should have received but didn’t because the Employer did not respect the course limit (15 credits over two consecutive sessions).
In the other case, the Association partially succeeded in questioning the Employer’s position on their lack of respect for the hiring process. The member received a financial compensation of half the worth of the contract and one seniority point.

The Association would like to take the opportunity to remind members that it’s important to bring all violations of the Collective Agreement to our attention. You are always welcome to contact the Association for assistance
.

 

Publication of the Winter 2015 Hiring Report - January 30 2015

The University will publish the Winter 2015 Hiring Report on January 30 2015. It will be available here.
 
If you applied unsuccessfully for a course, you can review the report and the successful candidates' category and seniority points. If you believe that the hiring process was not respected, you can contact the Association by replying to this email or by visiting the "Contact Us" page
.
 
You have until the end of February 2015 to file a complaint.

 

Change in prescription drug coverage for APTPUO members who are age 65 or older

During the most recent round of bargaining, the Association was successful in extending the medical plan for members from 65 years to 71 years. On February 1, 2015, prescription drug coverage for APTPUO members will be changed to make the University of Ottawa’s Extended Health Insurance Plan the second payer for prescription drug coverage.
 
Ontario residents
 
If you live in Ontario, this change will be transparent. The coordination between the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) program (the first payer) and the University’s Extended Health Insurance Plan (the second payer) will be done automatically at the pharmacy.
 
Québec residents
 
As of February 1, 2015, if you are a Québec resident and age 65 or older, you must be registered with the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ) for basic drug coverage so that you are also eligible for supplementary drug coverage under the University’s plan.  Depending on your situation, you may need to take action as a result of this change.
 
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

 

Additional Compensation – Accommodations and supplemental examinations

The Association and the Employer are in ongoing discussions in relation to accommodation requests and supplementary examinations. In the latter case, minor details remain to be addressed, but an agreement of the interpretation of Article 5.2.2.1 should be released shortly. The Association will communicate the agreement as soon as possible.
However, in the first case, major differences remain despite ongoing discussions. The Association is considering its options while continuing the discussion and will inform members once there is more information.

 

Department Representatives (Union Council)

The Association recognizes the importance of Department Representatives across campus. Each Department for which Part-Time Professors teach 36 credits or more has at least one part-time professor that represents them at the Department Assembly. The strength of these representatives shows the importance of part-time professors at various levels of the University. We have started to work with the Department Representatives to ensure better communication between the Association and part-time professors in all departments.
 
Please take a look at our current list of Department Representatives. If your Department has a vacancy and you are interested in participating in this work, please get in touch with us.
Department Representatives have access to one seniority point for this contribution.

Joint Committees – Vacant Positions

The Pension Plan Committee and the Health and Safety Committee are looking for part-time professors to participate as representatives. By sitting on the committees, you will have access to one seniority point for that work. If you are interested in being a representative on either of these committees, please let us know by contacting the Association.
