The Unit 1 Collective Agreement will expire on December 31, 2020.

We have submitted our notice to bargain, with the goal of first meeting the Employer to negotiate in November. 

The Bargaining Committee has finalized a bargaining platform in consultation with stewards, and has shared these proposals with the membership (Slideshow and Document). This platform will be voted on at a Special Membership Meeting (SMM) on November 6, 2020, from 2:00pm-5:00pm. If you are a Unit 1 member, register now to attend this virtual meeting

Bargaining Support Committee (BSC)

The Bargaining Support Committee (BSC) is responsible for organizing among the membership, the University, and the community in support of the Local’s aims in bargaining. Each bargaining unit has a BSC, which works with the unit’s Bargaining Team and the Local to develop and implement a plan for organizing around a round of bargaining. In the event that a strike is undertaken, the Bargaining Support Committee becomes the Strike Committee (SC). The duties of the BSC are outlined in Article 14.3 of the Local’s bylaws.

Unit 1 BSC Chair: Eriks Bredovskis & Abdus Shuman

Unit 1 BSC Members: Dawn Walker, Alex Djedovic, Mariam Karim, Adam El-Masri
Staff Assigned: Tzazná Miranda Leal, Staff Organizer
