Looking for your collective agreement or the current minutes of the meeting? Look for a list of downloadable documents. On campus, we work with a coalition of student unions and other UofT collaborators, such as librarians, service and furnishing staff, administrators and OISE graduate assistants. We are working together to counter the increase in tuition fees, minimize the impact of provincial cuts on UofT workers, and ensure that university management favours both students and workers. The last time, in April 2013, postdoctoral fellows voted for CUPE 3902 as Unit 5. During the first round of negotiations, long and controversial, the post-doctrinals voted against a provisional agreement and then voted 81% in favor of the strike. Mainly stimulated by the strike mandate, a new provisional agreement was reached and ratified during the winter of 2015/2016. One of the benefits we gained from CUPE membership was a connection to the rest of the Canadian and international labour movement. We are currently affiliated with the University of Ontario Workers` Committee (Ontario CUPE University Locals), the CUPE District Labour Council (Toronto CUPE Locals), the Toronto and York Labour Council (Toronto and York), the CUPE Ontario Division (Ontario CUPE Locals), CUPE National (all CUPE Locals) and the Canadian Labour Congress (unions across Canada). We also belong to the Coalition of Graduate Employees` Unions (CGEU), the Canadian CGEU and the Coalition of Academic Contingent Labour (COCAL), which connect us with others in our sector. In April 2011, course directors, teachers and training professors at the University of Saint-Michel voted to join our Union as Unit 4. Members who ratified their first collective agreement at St.

With membership in Canada`s largest public sector union, we are now part of a much more powerful and politically active organization that has resources far beyond those of CUEW. .
