University, OPSEU Local 452 ratify collective agreement

The tentative collective agreement between Queen’s University and the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) Local 452 is now in effect.

OPSEU Local 452 bargaining unit members voted to ratify the collective agreement on September 30, 2019 and the Human Resources Committee of the Queen’s Board of Trustees voted to ratify the collective agreement on October 17, 2019.

An important consequence of successful ratification is that OPSEU Local 452 agreed on behalf of their eligible members, to the conversion of the Queen’s Pension Plan (QPP) to the proposed jointly sponsored University Pension Plan (UPP). The terms of the pension consent agreement will form part of the parties’ collective agreement.

The university and OPSEU Local 452 also agreed to renew their collective agreement.
The renewed collective agreement will succeed the current agreement, effective retroactively to July 1, 2018. The new four-year agreement will expire on June 30, 2022.
