The University of Ottawa has reached a tentative deal for a new collective agreement with the Association of Professors of the University of Ottawa (APUO), the union representing its full-time faculty members.
The agreement was reached on Monday April 25, after several days of talks with a mediator. The deal must be ratified by the University’s Board of Governors and the members of the APUO.
“At the beginning of this bargaining round, we set a timeframe within which we wanted to conclude a new collective agreement. We are very happy to have reached a tentative settlement within that period,” said Allan Rock, President of the University of Ottawa. “This deal offers increased compensation and other terms that are competitive with conditions at other Canadian universities. I would like to thank members of both bargaining committees for their efforts.”
The details of the tentative agreement will not be made public until both the University’s Board of Governors and APUO members have approved them.
Negotiations are still ongoing with the union representing uOttawa’s support staff (SSUO-OSSTF). The University is confident that an agreement can be reached in a timely matter.
