SMU Bargaining Update

We had three afternoon bargaining sessions at SMU in quick succession (Oct. 7, 12, 14).

The only thing we discussed is a set of proposals to update the hiring and appointment processes towards continuing appointments, one of our bargaining priorities. After a few exchanges it looked like we were coming to an agreement but we are still negotiating some of the wording.

Our CUPE rep is not available most of November so our next dates at all three universities are in late November or December. We are booking dates well into January so we can make sure to reserve as much time as possible for bargaining.

Upcoming bargaining sessions:

  • November 30, 2021
  • December 1, 2021
