Collective Agreements and Supporting Documents
This electronic version of the August 16, 2014 - August 15, 2017 Collective Agreement between Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 3904 Unit 1 and the Board of Governors of Ryerson University is provided for the convenient reference of CUPE members and other interested parties. If any conflict is found between this version and the official documents, the terms of the official documents will prevail.
The University and CUPE Local 3904, Unit One have reached a tentative settlement for a new collective agreement. The tentative agreement is subject to ratification by the Union membership and the University’s Board of Governors. The union will be conducting a ratification vote the week of February 26. Ratification by the University’s Board of Governors will follow shortly thereafter.
Ryerson University is committed to reaching a renewal collective agreement with CUPE Local 3904, Unit 1, which represents approximately 970 part-time and sessional Contract Lecturers.
After twenty-two days of collective bargaining meetings since May 26, 2017, the parties have made significant progress, but a number of issues remain outstanding. The union has filed for conciliation, and the Ministry of Labour has appointed a Conciliation Officer who will meet with the parties shortly.
The University looks forward to this opportunity to utilize the Ministry’s assistance in the conciliation process to achieve a fair and reasonable negotiated settlement.
The current Collective Agreement between CUPE Local 3904, Unit 1 and the Board of Governors of Ryerson University expired on August 15, 2017. Negotiation of the new contract began on May 26, 2017. Currently the parties are still in the process of bargaining, and as such the 2014-2017 Collective Agreement remains in effect.
