Dalhousie and CUPE Local 3912 reach tentative agreement

Posted by admin on December 12, 2017 in Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), Local 3912

Dalhousie University and CUPE Local 3912 have successfully reached a tentative collective agreement.

A tentative agreement means that both parties have agreed to the terms of a collective agreement, which need to be agreed to or ratified by the CUPE Local 3912 members and the university’s Board of Governors.

The bargaining teams met on multiple occasions throughout the year, and meetings were productive throughout the collective bargaining process.

The details of the tentative deal will be made available once the Board of Governors and the membership of CUPE Local 3912 have ratified the collective agreement. Ratification is expected to occur in the New Year.

CUPE Local 3912 represents more than 1,200 part-time academics, teaching assistants, markers and demonstrators at Dalhousie. The CUPE Local 3912 collective agreement expired on August 31, 2016.
