CUPE 1334 reaches tentative agreement with University of Guelph

The union representing trades, maintenance and service workers at the University of Guelph last night reached a tentative agreement with the University of Guelph.

Negotiators for Local 1334 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE 1334) reached the deal with the University late Saturday evening, averting a potential lockout or strike that could have begun as early as Monday morning.

It is expected that the union will hold a ratification meeting early next week to present the agreement to members for a vote on whether to accept or reject it.

Until members have had a chance to review and make a decision on the tentative agreement, CUPE 1334 will make no further public statements.

February General Membership Meeting for Local #3799

Good day all,

Our next general membership meeting will be held on February 22nd, 2017 over the lunch hour in the Senate Chambers.

The meeting was moved to the third Wednesday of the month due to Northern Area District Council (NADC) workshops being held over the last couple of days in February, first few days in March. As such, several members of the Executive will be off campus.

Dale Laluk, will not be able to Elluminate the session this time around as he will be off campus on Wednesday. Please be sure to read the general membership meeting minutes once they are sent out following the meeting.

Just a heads up on March’s meeting – we have moved that meeting to the third week of the month as well due to conference services having the Senate Chambers booked for a full day event on the last Wednesday of the month. The March meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd over the lunch hour in the Senate Chambers – please update your calendar now.

See you at the meeting on Wednesday.

In solidarity,

CUPE 3799 President Acclaimed

As nominations closed today for a variety of Executive positions Caroline Sewell has been acclaimed as President for another two years.
Joyce Henley has been nominated for both Chief Shop Steward and Recording Secretary. She will declare her intentions at the next general meeting.
Two people have put their names forward for the OH&S committee as either Primary or Alternate roll. At the next general meeting this will be determined after they have decided their intentions.

January General Meeting Re-do

Hi Again,

As many of you know we had to cancel our General Membership Meeting on January 25th because we weren’t going to meet Executive quorum. We’ve rescheduled it for February 8, 2017 in the Senate Chambers. Again, we’ve got nominations and all sorts of stuff to talk about. We should be able to tell you more about the CUPE workshops being held at the NADC Weeklong School in Prince George at the end of February as well.

For those of us who can’t make it to the meeting in person, here is the Elluminate link:

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me or another member of your Executive.

Joyce Henley, BSc
