On Thursday, CUPE 4163 and the University of Victoria reached a preliminary agreement through mediation. The collective agreement, which is now available on the Human Resources website, contains a number of updates and changes as a result of the bargaining process. In some cases, the changes led to approved operating savings and these savings were then diverted to support other changes to the agreement. CUPE 4163 is known as the University of Victoria Educational Employment Union. The room consists of three „components“, each with its own tariff language. The full text of the last collective agreement is 951 CA 2019-2022. Other adjustments to the collective agreement are as follows: some changes to the expanded health and dentist plans have also been negotiated. These changes will be introduced throughout the duration of the agreement. The Labour and Labour Relations team works closely with all managers and human resources advisors on all matters relating to the interpretation and application of collective agreements. I thank the members who participated in last night`s meeting to review the provisional agreement. Below is a link to the provisional agreement. In addition, the parties agreed to implement targeted market adjustments to address chronic labour market issues in certain occupations that impact the university`s ability to fulfill, enhance and maintain its core academic mission.
For example, capital project managers, certain fundraising positions and certain computer positions. The former Critical Capability Adaptation Programme will end during the term of the agreement. An adjustment of 0.4% to the salary ceiling will also be introduced on 1 July 2021 in order to improve the overall competitiveness of pea remuneration scales. As already reported at the beginning of the year, the university and the professional association (PEA) have successfully negotiated a new collective agreement for the period from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022. The agreement, fully negotiated under the BC government`s sustainable services bargaining mandate, has in the meantime been ratified by both sides and approved by the Public Sector Employers` Council. The new collective agreement is now available as a reference on the human resources website.
