The tentative collective agreement between Queen’s University and CUPE Local 254 is now in effect following a successful ratification vote by bargaining unit members held on Dec. 21, 2021.
The Human Resources Committee of the Queen’s Board of Trustees voted to ratify the agreement on Nov. 25, 2021.
The renewed collective agreement will succeed the current agreement, effective retroactively to July 1, 2021.
Negotiations between Queen’s and CUPE Local 254 began on June 14, 2021. Bargaining took place over seven full-day sessions. Two of the full-day bargaining sessions were conducted with the assistance of a provincially appointed conciliator.
The new three-year agreement will expire on June 30, 2024.
Human Resources will be hosting an information session for managers regarding the implementation of the renewed collective agreement. Further information will be communicated in the new year.
