August 26, 2011

OPSEU has filed notice with the College Employer Council that over 8,000 college support workers will walk off the job this Thursday if a contract settlement is not reached with management. Both sides have scheduled 3 days of negotiations starting today. The main issues for the union include benefits, job security, and wages. On Friday the College Employer Council confirmed its offer of salary increases and no concessions from employers in a proposed 3-year contract with support staff.
