Members Needed To Serve On The Negotiating Committee

The Negotiating Committee is perhaps one of the Local's most important committees. Members of the Negotiating Committee work together to find creative and effective ways of reaching out to the membership to determine what issues exist in relation to their work as a Teaching Assistant and what, if any, changes they would like to achieve in their working conditions. The concerns and interests of members are then prioritized and will be brought to the table during the next round of contract negotiations, which are to begin in the summer of 2017.

Changes can only be made to our Collective Agreement (CA) when the Local meets with the Employer to collectively bargain for our next contract.

It is the CA that outlines all of our working conditions, such as our wages, rights and responsibilities, and the avenues through which we are to redress workplace grievances. When the Local sits with the Employer at the bargaining table, it does not only ask the Employer to meet new demands that have been brought forth by the membership, it also works to ensure that the Employer does not try to cut what the Local has already successfully bargained for in previous years, such as our wages and funds provided to our benefit programs, such as the Financial Aid Fund.

The Negotiating Committee is the driving force of the Local's next round of contract negotiations and bargaining for a new contract. If you are interested in helping the Local to determine what issues matter to our members and what concerns members would like the Local to present to the Employer when it comes time to bargain for our next contract, please let us know! For more information about the committee or if you are interested in getting involved, please contact the Local's President, Jaime Brenes Reyes: This email address is being protected from spambots.

A significant portion of our members are also members of the University of Western Ontario Society of Graduate Students.
