Part-Time Support Staff Collective Agreement Negotiations – Update 2

Bargaining continued July 4 – 6

The College Employer Council continued negotiations this past week to reach an agreement that will provide long-term success for all part-time support staff and Ontario’s 24 Colleges. The discussions were positive and productive.

The Colleges’ Bargaining Team is committed to continuing the process of fair, open and honest negotiations and to working with OPSEU to negotiate an agreement that will:

  • Maintain local operational flexibility;
  • Recognize the diversity of part-time employment relationships that have been developed in the Colleges;
  • Recognize the unique needs of part-time staff; and
  • Provide students with employment opportunities during their time at college.

The following dates have been scheduled for negotiations: August 23, 24, 30, 31; September 18, 19, 24, 25, 26; and October 2, 3, 4, 15, 16, 17. We will provide updates as negotiations progress.
