Aeses Collective Agreement University Of Winnipeg

“Honestly, we don`t understand. The university refused to explain what this means to us,” he said of the demand for wage reductions, which the province says is due to the pandemic.┬áStudents return to university when economics has a hiccup… and they`re preparing for a growing economy,” Shaw said. “We think it`s time to invest in Manitoba`s universities.” For the final year of their four-year collective agreement, umFA and the U of M government agreed to renegotiate wages after the Manitoba Employment Agency established the university in an unfair labour practice at the behest of the government. The union lamented that the university had withdrawn a salary offer. The government has ordered the university administration to aim for a 2.5 per cent reduction in faculty labour costs as it negotiates salaries for the 2020-21 school year. “Some parts of our university community have already joined our joint fight against COVID-19 and we are very grateful,” Finance Minister Scott Fielding said in a statement.

Three unions from the University of Manitoba, representing non-faculty-related staff, participated, but not the university`s faculty. Interpretation of collective agreements and policies, hiring processes, working conditions Michael Shaw, president of the University Association of Faculties, says it is another blow to its members who will be on strike on November 16 if they do not quickly reach an agreement with the university administration. Unions say they were exposed to layoffs at the beginning of the pandemic. Unifor had 220 temporary redundancies, AESES had 140 temporary redundancies and CUPE 1482 lost seven casual positions.

Some of these people remain in work, unions say. Jamie Moses, the NDP`s critic for economic development and training, said any union should have the right to negotiate a fair deal. Initially, the province called on universities, schools and crown groups to find, among other publicly funded institutions, ways to reduce staff costs by up to 30%. The request was strongly rejected by the workers` groups. Both sides agreed that day to call in a mediator to help resolve their dispute.
