Now that the dust has settled and a committee is being formed to implement our new Collective Agreement (CA), this open letter is being circulated in order to recognize the CUPE3902 Unit 1 Bargaining Team and their time and work to negotiate a collective agreement with significant and wide-reaching benefits. This agreement contains funding increases and healthcare benefits to communities on campus that have borne significant hardships, this includes students who are parents, students in the unfunded years, and students with mental health concerns. These benefits are invaluable and will change the way many graduate students experience their time at the University of Toronto. This CA provides a better future for graduate students at UofT.
Please sign below to acknowledge the work of our colleagues in CUPE3902: the staff, the union members on the BT and in the Exec.. We must not take for granted the hard work of our colleagues in CUPE3902. This battle was hard fought.
