Last Collective Agreement Update:

November 5, 2020: The Memorandum of Settlement was ratified by both parties and thus the newly negotiated language is included in the Unit 1 Collective Agreement (Sep 7, 2019 – Sep. 6, 2022), effective immediately. This concluded the 17 months of negotiations with the employer in this round of collective bargaining.

Unit 1 Bargaining Committee 2022

At the GMM on Thurs, Nov 18th, Darrin Sunstrum, Tracy Kennedy, and Brigitte Cecckin were nominated and acclaimed as members of the Unit 1 Bargaining Committee. The President, Nathan Cecckin, is automatically a Unit 1 Bargaining Committee member. There is one graduate vacancy on the Unit 1 Bargaining Committee, which will be revisited at the Oct 2022 GMM.  If you’d like to reach out to the Bargaining Committee, you can email the team: cupe4207bargaining@gmail.com



Where are we in the Bargaining Cycle? 
As contract workers, the Bargaining Cycle never really ends. Once a Collective Agreement has been Ratified and Signed off, preparations begin in the background to set up for the next round. The Unit 1 Collective Agreement expired Sept 6th, 2022.
