At the end of the second round of meetings between our CAAT Bargaining Team and the Colleges' representative Council, we have an impasse. In the links below you can read our Team's summary of events and plans for going forward.
We will be holding General Meetings across Sheridan on September 11 with a member of the Bargaining Team in attendance.
There are two documents that deserve your attention:
The latest Bargaining Team Bulletin:
Bargaining Begins in July. The latest Bargaining Team Update gives the background themes and forward looking goals to collegial governance that underlie our bargaining demands. Sheridan is a leader in this progressive initiative. And here is a link to the Bargaining Team's Video on Collegial Governance.
For those who wish to dig deeper into the history and rationale for the 2017 round of negotiations, I have sent a more comprehensive Bargaining Team letter to your off-campus email address. If you have not received that email, and wish to receive further private emails, please send your off-campus email address to email@example.com.
Here is a quick synopsis of what will transpire between now and September 30, 2017, when our current contract expires.
We bargain collectively as the Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology - Academic Division. We are a division of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union. This past Fall, delegates from the 24 colleges met and elected a bargaining team. You can read about the whole process and about the membership of the Bargaining Team in their first Bargaining Bulletin found here - https://opseu.org/news/facing-challenges-together-caat-negotiations-bulletin-issue-1 . All Bulletins are linked to the column on your left.
The Sheridan Survey results have been emailed to your personal email address.
If you haven't sent us your personal email please do so as soon as possible to receive Local 244 correspondence, and confidential Bargaining updates.
