Bargaining Team Report for PSAC 901 Unit 2

 Conciliation continues: University hesitates at creative solution

The Postdoc Bargaining Team continued conciliation well into the evening with the University and Conciliator Diane Bull. The University had asked us to work within a limited monetary envelope. When your team proposed a creative solution that would satisfy the member’s mandate within the monetary envelope, the university balked.

We trust that the university will respond to our proposal in good faith.

While no dates are set, the parties are looking into additional conciliation dates.

Strike Training for Picket/Strike Captains will commence on November 10th. Strike Training for the   Unit 2 general membership will follow at a date to be determined.

There will be a Special General Meeting on November 9th at 6pm, where a Strike Committee will be elected.

You will receive a communication from us by email, web bulletin and social media after every meeting with the employer.

Please contact VP-Postdocs Silja Freitag at for more information.

In solidarity,

Your Bargaining Team
