As you may recall, the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) that was ratified in December is a one-year agreement; it expires August 31, 2021. We need to elect a new bargaining team consisting of Sessionals to help re-negotiate the new Collective Agreement. We expect that this process will begin in the summer and may continue until the fall. Sitting on a bargaining team is an important way to ensure that the voices of Sessionals are heard and that their priorities are reflected in our bargaining proposals.
We are holding a Special General Membership Meeting (SGMM) on Thursday, March 11th at 1 pm via Zoom. A registration link will be sent to you in a separate email.
All members are encouraged to attend, and any member is able to nominate themselves or nominate someone else to serve on the bargaining committee. This is an important opportunity to help to ensure that our CBA continues to grow stronger and reflect the diverse interests of our members.
If you have any additional questions about the bargaining process or sitting on the bargaining committee, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
