Usw Local 2010 Collective Agreement

The university recently received a petition from USW. The petition stated that university assistants had their salaries frozen for four years. In fact, the parties negotiated a significant increase in wages in the first year of the collective agreement, which began in 2012, instead of spreading the wage increases over the duration of the four-year contract. This agreement between the USW and the Queen resulted in workers having earlier a sharper increase in wages in the collective agreement, rather than minor increases throughout the collective agreement. Queen`s University and United Steelworkers (ETC) Local 2010, Unit 01, which represents academic assistants, have been actively negotiating the renewal of their collective agreement since June. After four negotiating dates in June, the parties asked the provincial government to appoint a mediator to assist the negotiations. The request for a mediator is a normal aspect of collective bargaining. A provincially appointed conciliation officer engages with the parties while they deal with outstanding issues. Collective agreements set out the terms and conditions of employment of unionized workers as well as the rights, privileges and obligations of the union, employer and workers.
