Unit 1 Conciliation @ TBA
Feb 20 all-day

UNIT 1 conciliation:

The union has requested Ministry of Labour to appoint a conciliator to help the union reach a fair collective agreement with the university.

Conciliation is a formal step under the labour law, and is frequently undertaken to bring parties closer together and finalize negotiations. It is also legally necessary for either the union or the university to engage in job action or a lock out.

There have been two days of conciliation scheduled, February 20 and February 28.

“The Ford Conservatives have cut billions to give large corporations huge tax breaks. They have trampled over workers’ constitutional right to collective bargaining through Bill 124. They have created chaos in school boards, universities, health care, municipalities, and social services.

Ontarians don’t want their austerity agenda. They don’t want to lose the public services they depend on. They want investments in communities, not cuts! ”
