UWOFA-LA Bargaining Update -- September 18, 2023

The union representing Librarians and Archivists (UWOFA-LA) requested a no-board report, which has been granted. This is a standard part of the contract-bargaining process; it does not mean a labour disruption is imminent or inevitable.

Since May 2023, the bargaining committees for the parties have met 14 times and have signed off on numerous articles improving the terms and conditions of Librarians and Archivists.

The University is hopeful that an agreement can be negotiated, and a strike avoided. The parties have agreed to meet with a mediator on October 3rd to assist the parties in reaching a negotiated settlement.
