Updates – Bargaining Bulletins

Bulletin 3 – July 7, 2023


OCADFA’s Negotiations Committee met with the Administration’s team today to review, ask clarification questions, and elaborate on the intentions of each other’s initial proposals. 

The aim of today was not to respond with positions or counters on each proposal, but build a better understanding of the proposals on the table and the issues they are intended to address. It was productive in that sense, and we look forward to making progress towards a renewed Memorandum of Agreement.
OCADFA’s Negotiations Committee met with the Admin on Friday (May 26) to exchange initial proposals to renew the MOA, which expires on June 30. Our proposals are based on the seven pillars of our bargaining mandate, as approved by the membership at the Nov 2022 AGM. Our focus is on Raising the Bar at OCADU, and our proposals will improve faculty and academic staff working conditions, which are student learning conditions. You can find more information on our proposals on the new Bargaining Section of our website.
