University of Ottawa and support staff approve new collective agreement

Posted on Tuesday, October 29, 2013

The University of Ottawa and its support staff have ratified a new collective agreement.

Members of the bargaining unit representing support staff (OSSTF-SSUO) voted 97 per cent in favour of the proposed agreement last week. Members of the University of Ottawa's Board of Governors did the same last night.

“I am pleased that both parties have now accepted this deal which recognizes the importance of our support staff. I want to thank everybody involved in the negotiations for their efforts and this successful outcome”, said Allan Rock, president and vice-chancellor of the University.

The four-year agreement is retroactive to May 1, 2012 and expires April 30, 2016.
