Niagara College Opseu Collective Agreement

by admin on April 10th, 2021

In light of the Ford government`s announcement that 60% of post-secondary funding will be tied to performance indicators, DivEx proposes that Aboriginal people convene a meeting of their College Employment Stability Committee (CSSC) to gather proactive information and plan to end negative effects on the faculty. By starting these discussions on the CESC process, which is within the scope of Section 27 and 28, we have the opportunity to influence outcomes in our universities. The DivEx recommends the CESC instead of the UCC as a mechanism for these discussions because of the timetables inherent in the CESC. If.B, in accordance with Article 27.05 (iii), a member of the CESC requests a meeting within three calendar days of the opening of the process, the committee meets within seven days to discuss the proposed downsizing, the circumstances that caused it, etc. Thanks to the CESC, these discussions will remain on track, meetings will be held regularly and we will receive information from our colleges in due course. The Discussions on the CeSC will also give us the opportunity to ask our universities for their budgets and how they intend to fill this potential funding gap. If you are not familiar with your college`s budgeting process, use the CESC meetings to get them explained. With the new articles 26.10 D and 26.10 E of the collective agreement, many colleges did not agree with the Union`s interpretation of the underload register. As a result, opsEU filed three complaints from the Central Union in the fall of 2018.

Two complaints were heard by Arbitrator Knopf, and ruled in August 2019. The CEC refused to consolidate the third – and probably the most important – action of the Union, which deals with whether priority hiring is based on individual courses or course packages. While this Union complaint is still at stake, we are awaiting a decision on an individual Niagara College complaint dealing with the same issue. The first complaint, heard by Von Knopf, calls into question the question of the registry itself: who maintains it, what information should be included in it and what information should be disclosed? The verdict states that colleges must maintain the registry. The register must include all courses that will be taught by the faculties of the load section from October 2017, regardless of their status, when they taught the course (part-time, partial, full-time, sessional). In other words, part-time courses must also be included in the registration. For courses taught before October 2017, colleges are not required to import the history of the faculty.
