We remain in favour of open and collegial discussions aimed at re-emerging a new collective agreement. Five more meetings are now scheduled for September, starting on September 5, so that these negotiations can continue to be concluded. The strike continued on 15 July 2018. [51] [52] The students` criticisms were levelled at CUPE 3903 and the mistreatment of the dispute by York University President Rhonda Lenton. [53] [54] [55] [56] Thirty years later, after four major CUPE 3903 strikes, from 2000 to 2018, this injustice persists. It is time to start with the “Doin” of the good, which means that we are looking wisely and concretely at the “affirmative action”. During the two days of negotiations, progress was made in finding common ground on several outstanding issues. Proposals were exchanged and agreement was reached on several points, including Table 1 showing the number of university conversion dates on the history of the program, with consistently higher figures for 2002, 2003 and 2006-08. From 2015 to 2017 is the highest figure for Block 2 on a three-year collective agreement.

However, the 2015 CUPE 3903 Unit 2 count contained for the first time specifications for flow-based thought figures, i.e. on faculty positions or Alternate Stream. At least six of the 24 changes negotiated for 2015/2017 should be reserved for teachers” electricity. In the end, eight members of Unit 2 were transformed by the university into faculty positions and sixteen into Alternate Stream over a three-year period. The yufa collective agreement expired on April 30, 2015. At the end of May 2015, YUFA began negotiations with the employer for a new and improved collective agreement. York University and the York University Faculty Association (YUFA) continue to hold productive meetings and are working towards a collective renewal agreement. For the last time, the negotiating teams met on 13 August, 15 August and 20 August for discussions on important justice issues, an area that reflects a common priority. In light of Kaplan`s recommendation, the Ontario government introduced Bill 70, the York University Labour Disputes Resolution Act 2018, on May 7. The bill was introduced the day before the bill ahead of The 2018 ontario general election. Opposition from the Ontario NDP slowed the passage of the legislation at first reading; it was eventually carried with division.

[57] The bill died before a second or third reading could be made after the government dissolved the legislative branch earlier than planned. With the dissolution of the legislature, the result of legislation would take place after the 2018 general election in Ontario. [58] Prior to the 2015 Unit 2 count, Unit 2 members` Alternate Stream conversions were negotiated individually during their conversion application, provided they taught in one of the Cognate units where Alternate Stream grades were authorized by the provisions of the yufa collective agreement. Until 2012, these departments were: care, kinesiology and health sciences at the Faculty of Health, the Faculty of Science and Technology, the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics, the Center for Academic Writing, the French of Studies in LAPS and the French Language Training Programme in Glendon. In 2012, the regulations negotiated by yufa extended the Alternate Stream to all departments of the university. However, some of these departments subsequently refused to accept Alternate Stream dates within their units, while some departments agreed to accept Alternate Flow faculties only for CUPE 3903 conversions.
