Montreal: Technicians and Library Workers Reach Agreement with Concordia University

UPDATE September 17, 2013: The Link has posted a second article about the new agreement and the negotiations that lead to it.

Access it here.

From the Article:

Both CUUSS-TS and the Concordia University Library Employees’ Union agreed to a 10 per cent wage increase over six years, according to a press release for the Confédération des syndicats nationaux, Quebec’s second-largest trade union federation, which contains five local unions at Concordia including both CUUSS-TS and CULEU.

From The Link (Student Newspaper):

Following 51 months without labour contracts in place, Concordia’s technicians and library support staff unions both came to agreements in principle with the university in the past seven days.

“We are pleased to finally reach an agreement with Concordia,” said Alex Macpherson, president of the Concordia University Union of Support Staff – Technical Sector.

“After 42 months of negotiations, and 51 months since our last collective agreement expired, both sides needed to make compromises to settle on a deal.”

The particulars of the agreements are currently unavailable as all “in principle” agreements are confidential until they are submitted to union members for ratification and subsequently approved by Concordia’s Board of Governors.
