Congratulations on the adoption of your second collective agreement. Thank you to everyone who attended the Special Assembly on November 20th. In the first collective agreement, section 15.03 states that McGill units are not required to publish courses on their website when they “hire students enrolled in post-graduate programs, post-doctors, retired professors, adjunkcts professors, managers or professionals.” However, the same clause stipulates that the number of courses that are not booked in a recruitment unit should not exceed 15 per cent of the total number of courses “that are not allocated to regular teachers”. The negotiating committee is pleased to inform you that after more than two years of intensive negotiations and conciliation, the Union and the employer agreed on the principle on 30 October 2020 and signed an agreement on our second collective agreement. In the coming weeks, the parties will finalize and sign the text of the new agreement. Shortly thereafter, the detailed conditions are shared with the community.

The agreement in principle submitted to the general meeting was found to be satisfactory for the union, the content of which corresponded exactly to the agreement reached with the employer at the end of October 2010.
