The 3906 Unit 3 (Postdocs) bargaining team was at the bargaining table late this afternoon when we were informed of this draconian, unprecedented, and unconstitutional intrusion into the collective bargaining process.
We know that the government plans on capping wage increases at 1% for three years, but that the legislature will be put on recess beginning tomorrow. The legislation will not be passed until November. It is unclear how this will impact our bargaining and our members.
The Unit 1 (TAs) will be at the bargaining table next week.
We will keep members informed as we gather more information, and vow to fight this attack on working people. Click here for a statement from CUPE Ontario.
