The Colleges Collective Bargaining Act (Ontario) defines four bargaining units: full-time/part-time employment, part-time/session faculty, full-time support staff and part-time support staff. Examples of full-time scientific staff, administrative and support staff contracts can be found on the “Part-Time Boarding Process” page. The Colleges Collective Bargaining Act of 2008 qualifies the College Employer Council (www.thecouncil.on.ca) as a bargaining partner for Ontario colleges in negotiations with the union (OPSEU), which represents university staff at colleges. Our local sister, OPSEU Local 109, manages both full-time and part-time collective agreements for college support staff. In addition, the Commission provides a large number of services to the higher education system, such as human resources advice.B.B, tariff management, results management and research. Each college sets the conditions for non-unionized staff. TORONTO, January 30, 2019 /CNW/ – After nine months of collective bargaining, the College Employer Council (CEC) and the Ontario Public Service Workers Union (OPSEU) have entered into a collective agreement for part-time assistants at Ontario`s 24 colleges. OPSEU has successfully certified a union of part-time assistants. It was the largest union advance in Ontario`s history.
A collective agreement was also negotiated. A collective agreement is a written contract between an employer and a union that describes many of the conditions of employment of workers in a collective agreement unit. There are two collective agreements that cover members of Algonquin College`s collective agreement unit. The Council confirmed that 35.2% of the workers concerned signed cards. We also received advice from the College Employer Council that the majority voted in favour of the MEMBERSHIP of OPSEU and that OPSEU is now officially recognized as a representative of part-time support staff at Ontario colleges. OPSEU has successfully certified a part-time assistant union. It was the largest union advance in Ontario`s history. A collective agreement was also negotiated. OPSEU now has the exclusive right to represent all part-time assistance officers when it comes to negotiating the working conditions of these employees. We have not been informed by local OPSEU representatives and would suggest that if you have specific questions about this, you would pass them on to the regional offices of OPSEU. Yes, collective agreements always require the employer to deduct union dues from employees` wage cheques and to pay dues to the union. Any co-op student we hire as part of his training program, graduated from a college during the period of 12 months immediately after graduation or university training by the graduate, if the position is related to the requirement of certification, registration or accreditation (this can be: athletics coach, HR assistant (any graduate who works at the university to obtain hours of certification, license,.
B etc. CHRP, CGA, etc., Hum Guelphber or Humber-Co-op or a graduate student). The vote took place in June 2016 at universities. After the vote, the ballot boxes were placed under seal because Ontario law stipulates that at least 35 per cent of the workers involved must have signed union cards to allow for a certification vote. Since then, the Labour Council has found that the threshold has been reached. The College Employees Council (CEC) and the Ontario Public Service Workers Association (OPSEU) have entered into a two-year interim collective agreement for part-time workers.
