The parties met this week on Tuesday, October 20th and Wednesday, October 21st, 2015. Over the course of these, days we discussed:
- 5 – Casuals
- 7 – Generic Job Descriptions
- 9 – Letter of Agreement pertaining to Benefits Reduction voting process.
We also addressed articles xx.xx, xx.xx2, xx.xx6 and xx.xx7 (these are union proposals).
We were unable to come to any agreement for Appendices 5, 7 and 9 and will need to revisit these in future meetings.
For article xx.xx, MUNACA decided to withdraw it, as some aspects of this proposal are currently covered in our Collective Agreement (article 36.08). For xx.xx2, we have come to an agreement. For xx.xx6, MUNACA has withdrawn this proposal as the labour law covers this requirement and we have the means to address it beyond the Collective Agreement. Finally, for article xx.xx7, we have agreed to address this concern with the University Health and Safety Committee for a proper procedure to be put into place.
We will resume our negotiations next week on October 27th and 28th, 2015.
