RE: Unit 2 Ratification of Collective Agreement

Dear All Postdocs of Queen’s University

Our collective agreement (CA) which was expired on June 30th, 2020 has been ratified by Postdoctoral Scholars (Unit 2) and extended with Queen’s University. I am pleased to inform you that Unit 2 members voted in favor for the extension of CA through electronic voting opened from Saturday, September 5th to September 24th, 2020. Now, our collective agreement is extended for the period of June 30th, 2023.

 The increased wage will be retroactively calculated from July 1, 2020. So, through the power of collective bargaining we can enjoy proper contracts, a minimum salary, maternity/paternity/parental leave, a health and dental plan and a grievance system. On behalf of PSAC Local 901, Unit 2, I would also like to thank all the people involved in this bargaining process, especially Chief Negotiator Jawara Gairey.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions at [email protected]

In Solidarity,

Ramjee Kandel

Vice president (Postdoctoral Scholars)
