With their collective agreement approaching its expiration date on August 31, academic assistants and Queen’s have begun the negotiation process for a new agreement.
Representing the academic assistants is the USW Local 2010-01. The current agreement dates back to 2010 and outlines the rights and responsibilities of both the University and academic assistants.
Bargaining began on June 2 and continued on June 9, 10 and all day on June 13.
Lisa Latour Colby from Queen’s Human Resources could not offer a comment on the specific issues being discussed at the bargaining table, but did say that the process is going well.
