On July 24, 2018, OSSTF-35, which represents Office, Clerical, Administrative, and Library Support employees at Brock University, filed a request for the appointment of a conciliation officer, following nineteen meetings between the parties. The collective agreement between the University and OSSTF-District 35 expired on April 30, 2018.
Conciliation is a process by which a union or employer can apply to the Ontario Ministry of Labour for help in reaching a collective agreement.
The University remains committed to reaching a negotiated settlement, and looks forward to continuing discussions with OSSTF-35 to reach a collective agreement.
Further updates will be provided to the community as discussions continue.
