Usw Collective Agreement Utoronto

The university and OpsEU 519, which represent the campus police, agreed to begin negotiations on a collective renewal agreement on March 30, 2018. To date, the University and the Union have had four negotiating dates and have agreed to continue negotiations until the summer. Our goal is, as always, to conduct productive and constructive rounds of negotiations in order to reach a collective agreement. Last year, the university entered into fourteen collective agreements with five different unions representing more than 15,000 employees. The collective agreement provides for a 2.5% increase in wages this year, followed by a 2% increase over the next two years. This year`s wage increase implies a wage adjustment of 0.7% retroactive to July 1 to compensate for an increase in employee pension contributions. We had to put the $15 in place. The Law of the Land allowed employers with existing collective agreements to delay increases. Without him, we would not be able to sign a collective agreement. We made it clear to the employer that no collective agreement would be signed for full-time and part-time workers without a minimum wage of $15 for casual workers. We have also introduced a provision for equal pay for substantially similar work that is expected to come into force in May 2019 – before the deadline for workers with collective agreements in the January 2020 legislation. Collective renewal contracts concluded and ratified in 2018: “This is an uncompromising agreement that makes significant profits in the monetary and non-monetary fields,” said Local ETC 1998 President Colleen Burke.

TORONTO – United Steelworkers (ETC) Local members of the University of Toronto have ratified a new collective agreement that improves wages, job security and working conditions. There is a great contrast between a for-profit company like Aramark and employees at the University of Toronto. When, after the end of its contract with Aramark, the university “stopped” food services on the St. George campus, they became employed by UofT and were covered by the collective agreement of CUPE Local 3261. Their salaries and benefits have increased dramatically. For example, a full-time cashier was paid $12 an hour at Aramark, but rose to $19.69 when he was employed directly by UofT. “This collective agreement represents a major achievement for these employees who have faced a government-led austerity agenda and the demand for concessions,” said Marty Warren. More than 20,000 U of T employees are represented by 11 different unions and are subject to 23 separate collective agreements.
