Bargaining update #3

YUFA and the Employer have met six times over the last three weeks. The YUFA Bargaining Team has now presented all six areas of our proposals in detail: Equity, Compensation & Benefits, Working Conditions, Retiree Benefits, Faculty Complement, and Governance & Collegiality. Our Bargaining Team and the Employer have exchanged and tentatively agreed on some housekeeping items.

The Employer has started to respond to our proposals. We are eager to hear the Employer’s response to the majority of our proposals so that bargaining can progress quickly in July.

We remain hopeful that the Employer shares our vision of York as a community in which our members are given the support necessary to achieve our mutual goals of excellence as teachers, researchers, and colleagues.
