SMU Bargaining Updates

The current collective agreement is in effect until August 31, 2024.


December 19, 2023: In January, we will be holding a membership meeting for SMU PT Faculty to present the top priorities the negotiating committee has identified for this round of bargaining through the survey, the review of past grievances, issues and complaints as well as a revision of the collective agreement. At this meeting you will have the opportunity to ask questions, offer opinions and express concerns so that revisions can be done before the membership votes to approve the bargaining mandate.
Once we have secured approval of these priorities, the negotiating committee will work on the contract language of the proposals, and will give notice to the administration of our intent to start negotiations. Together we can negotiate a strong collective agreement!






















September 21, 2023: Tanya Bilsbury and Neil Balan were elected as the new members for the SMU Negotiating Committee. We thank the other candidates who participated in the election and look forward to working with them as part of our mobilization efforts. To prepare for the next round of bargaining the negotiating team will gather information through members surveys and meetings, review of past grievances and the current collective agreement to identify the top priorities and needs of SMU members. We look forward to getting your input!
