Collective Bargaining News Archive

The current collective agreement with the University expired on June 30. Bargaining for a new agreement began in June with both parties exchanging proposals.

While there are areas of disagreement, the dialogue thus far in bargaining has been productive and collegial. We have made progress in a number of substantive areas but much work remains to be done.

The current collective agreement with the University expires on June 30 and preparations are well underway for the next round of bargaining. In addition to feedback from the bargaining roundtables, the AAPS bargaining committee will develop proposals based on key areas of our advocacy work. Job security and the implications of Article 9 will again be a key consideration in the development of this year’s proposals.
