Cupe 3903 Unit 1 Collective Agreement

The desire to unite was successful for the first time at Victoria College. The Victoria TAs have obtained a certificate from the Association of Graduate Assistants (GAA). Since Arts Departments was transferred from college to university in 1974, the Victoria unit has been understaffed. As a result, no collective agreement was concluded and the representation rights were not rescinded. At the same time, the energy centre moved to the main U centre of campus T. Local Two, GAA, was certified in 1975 following a lengthy dispute and a certification vote. At the same time, TAs and Sessional Lecturer organized at York University (now local 3903 of CUPE) and Ryerson University (3904). During these early years, the National Union grew rapidly, albeit chaoticly, and organized ATTs at Lakehead University (3905), ATTs and contract faculties at McMaster University (3906) and graduate assistants at OISE (3907). In 1980, the Union renamed itself the Union of Educational Workers (CUEW).

CUEW eventually organized contract faculties at Trent University (3908), TADs and student teachers at the University of Manitoba (3909), a contract faculty at the University of Ottawa (dissolved in 1992) and a contract faculty at Athabasca University (3911).

This was done to facilitate a collective agreement between the University of York and each of the three units represented by enther 3903, which were in the midst of a strike. On May 4, 2018, Mr. Kaplan released his report. Mr. President Lenton, in your recent message to the New York community (“Two days of mediation lead to no solution”), you say that the CUPE transformation program remains a “fundamental problem” in the current conflict.

A confirmed negotiation date has been set for 25 November and the parties want to confirm further negotiating dates to move the negotiations forward. The tariff teams for CUPE Local 3903 and York University have begun collective negotiations for the renewal of CupE 3903 rate units 1, 2 and 3. During the first round of negotiations on 30 October, the parties discussed the potential for “extension agreements”. On Monday, November 16, the teams met for the second time via Zoom, where the university, in response to the October 30 discussions, presented a coaching project to extend Units 1, 2 and 3 of York CUPE 3903. Faced with the challenges faced by many people facing the persistent global pandemic, the University presented this framework proposal, believing that obtaining renewal agreements on terms acceptable to both parties would provide security for students, teaching assistants, contract teachers, university assistants and other university staff, and would be mutually beneficial in these difficult times. The university is awaiting CUPE 3903`s response to this proposal.
