We are very pleased to announce that on August 24, 2016, Western University and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) reached a settlement during hearings before the Ontario Labour Relations Board. Following the settlement, the votes cast on December 8, 2015 regarding whether Post-Doctoral Fellows at Western should join Public Service Alliance of Canada Local 610 were counted. The result was overwhelmingly in favour of joining PSAC Local 610. With the ballots counted and the settlement reached, Post-Doctoral Fellows at Western can prepare to collectively bargain for wage increases, health and dental benefits, and leaves with the support of the PSAC. Thank you to the PDFs who assisted us through the stages along the way!
