Human Resources website now includes collective bargaining section
The Employee and Labour Relations unit of Human Resources (HR) has unveiled a collective bargaining section on the HR website that presents an overview of all groups and collective agreements with accompanying updates, as well as links to agreement documents and union and association websites, and the status of ongoing negotiations.
“In the past, there has sometimes been confusion about the state of negotiations with particular groups or questions about the terms or duration of contracts. This section on the HR website will provide an overview of the ongoing collective bargaining process across our various groups. I think this valuable information will go a long way toward clarifying and simplifying what is often perceived as a complicated process,” says Maurice René de Cotret, Director of Employee and Labour Relations.
The collective bargaining section also includes frequently-asked questions that outline the ABCs of Quebec’s labour laws and Concordia’s bargaining process, as well as a list of university contacts.
“Concordia values each faculty and staff member and respects their rights to choose to be represented by a union or staff association,” adds Carolina Willsher, Associate Vice-President Human Resources.
“This new section is meant to inform faculty, staff, students, and the various stakeholders outside the university about the status of collective bargaining in a manner that does not impede or interfere with the collective bargaining process.”
