UTAS Professional Staff bargaining update

YOUR CPSU went to two meetings with UTAS and other unions to start the re-negotiation of the UTAS Staff Agreement.

Before Christmas  discussions started with CPSU Assistant Secretary Mat Johnston and the other parties seeking to establish the parameters of bargaining and work out a schedule of meetings.  These discussions continued this week  with all preliminary matters now substantially agreed around the table.

This is a reasonable start and negotiations on matters of substance will now be held later this month and at scheduled meetings through February and March.

Your CPSU will provide updates to UTAS Members soon after each meeting and welcomes input from these Members at any time.

With goodwill and a reasonable approach from all parties your CPSU is hopeful a good in-principle Agreement will be reached in the coming months for presentation to UTAS CPSU Members for ballot and approval.
