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.
