CEC accuses OPSEU of bargaining in bad faith

November 4, 2021
The College Employer Council (CEC) has accused the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) of bargaining in bad faith, and has filed a claim with the Ontario labour board, reports The Hamilton Spectator. Council CEO Graham Lloyd stated that the “mediation was unsuccessful due to their intransigence.” OPSEU Local 240 President Heather Giardine-Tuck asserted that the union has been bargaining in good faith and “has made considerable movements in its proposals.” CAUT executive director David Robinson commented on the situation, asserting that “[t]he demands that the union has focused on are fair and reasonable and are necessary for preserving the quality and integrity of post-secondary education in Ontario.” Newswire | The Hamilton Spectator | CAUT (ON)
