Bargaining Bulletin: June 2, 2010

Our Negotiations Team met with the UWO Team on Friday, May 28, 2010 to exchange proposals. Discussions followed where each side outlined their proposal with a brief explanation as to what they were trying to accomplish with it. While some major items have been tabled there have been no monetary proposals exchanged. This will be done after the majority of issues currently proposed have been dealt with.

The UWO Team includes the following individuals: Jane O’Brien, Associate Vice President, Human Resources and Lead Negotiator; Sandra Del Vasto, Human Resources and Compensation Specialist; Susan Grindrod, Associate Vice President, Housing & Ancillary Services; Louise Koza, Director, Total Compensation; Elana Whelan, HR Consultant, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry; and Melissa White, HR Consultant, Staff Relations.

As previously mentioned we will continue to meet on the following dates: June 7, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 25, July 6, 7, and 8.

We would like to remind everyone that if you contact the office during these times we may not always be able to respond right away but want you to rest assured that your concerns will be addressed. If you have an issue that needs a more immediate response you can always contact your Area Steward.

Our goal remains to get the best Collective Agreement we can! We do ask for your continued support throughout the process! If you have any questions or comments about the bargaining process, please get in touch with the Negotiations Committee Chair, UWOSA Vice President Deb Novakowski by e-mail or at extension 87574.
