August 21, 2018

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology Faculty Association is reportedly the first union in Ontario to win a consolidation of units under the labour relations provisions enacted in 2017. The Ontario Labour Relations Board agreed to consolidate the three bargaining units represented by the UOITFA into a single unit with one collective agreement. OCUFA states that for UOITFA, acting as one consolidated unit will mean it can dedicate all of its resources to getting industry competitive terms and conditions for all of its members. OCUFA
