BARGAINING UPDATE: CUASA & CU Agree to Mediation
CUASA and Carleton University have reached a mutual agreement to mediate. This follows CUASA’s formal proposal issued yesterday. The parties have further agreed to use Arbitrator William Kaplan.
In order to ensure maximum flexibility, CUASA’s team has proposed six dates to meet with the Employer and Arbitrator Kaplan: May 26 and 27, September 8 and 9, and September 15 and 16, 2018.
Under Section 19(2) of the Labour Relations Act, now that a mediator has been appointed, the Employer’s previous request for conciliation will be terminated.
Your union is committed to using the mediation process to achieve a fair deal. We will make ourselves available as often as possible, including for any possible cancellations Arbitrator Kaplan may have.
