Upcoming General Membership Meeting and Unit 2 Notice to Bargain

Mary Ellen CampbellUncategorized

Dear Members,

The Union’s most significant decisions are made by Union members at General Membership Meetings (GMMs).

All CUPE 3906 members of all 3 units (TAs and RAs in lieu, Sessional Faculty, Hourly Rated Sessional Music Faculty and Postdoctoral Fellows) can attend regular GMMs and get involved in the Union’s decision making processes.

    Our next GMM will be held on Tuesday, May 23rd 12:00PM (Noon) in Kenneth Taylor Hall (KTH) B104

    Agenda items will include: approval of several new policies; announcement and presentation of TA Awards and the Mike Skinner Award; update on Unit 2 Bargaining; as well as the following elections:

  • Equity Officer

    We continue to canvass the membership for volunteers to get involved with Bargaining Support in anticipation of negotiations toward a new Collective Agreement for Unit 2 members, which have officially begun as of May 4th.

    As usual, there will be free lunch and childcare costs to attend the meeting can be reimbursed.

UNIT 2 Notice to Bargain 

Did you know?  CUPE 3906 President Graham Baker served Notice to Bargain for Our Unit 2 Sessional Faculty and Hourly Rated Sessional Music Faculty (HRSMF)!

We will be negotiating with the Employer throughout the summer months to improve conditions for Sessional Faculty and HRSMF here at McMaster, but we need your help!  If you are a Unit 2 member, please fill out our Bargaining Survey and attend our meetings to have your say about your Collective Agreement!  All members of the Union are welcome and encouraged to support and show solidarity with Sessional Faculty and HRSMF by joining the Bargaining Support Committee.  For more information, please contact staff@cupe3906.org or tjx@cupe3906.org.
