Results of Ratification Vote

For those of you who have not had the opportunity to visit the UWOSA website, we wanted to let you know that UWOSA members voted 95% in favour of ratifying the tentative collective agreement reached on August 26th. At this point, the tentative contract also must be voted on by the Board of Governors at their September 24th meeting.

After the contract has been duly ratified by both sides, we will hold a series of sessions across campus in October outlining the changes to the collective agreement. Details of the dates, times and locations of these sessions will be forwarded to you as soon as they are finalized.

Applying for UWOSA vacancies?

Article 12 – Vacancies

One of the gains we made at the negotiations table last year was a significant addition to the language of Article 12.03 d).

UWO is now required to inform UWOSA of the name of the successful applicant as soon as a position has been filled. In the past, we either had to wait until the lists were posted on the HR website which could take several months or contact UWO with specific requests for such information.

The benefit to you is that, if you are unsuccessful in a UWOSA job competition, we can provide you with the name of the person who was selected; this will assist you in deciding whether or not to grieve the hiring decision. As a reminder, Article 12.03 c) states that seniority is the determining factor when 2 or more applicants have relatively equal SAQs.

Also, under Article 12, UWO must consider all internal applicants before hiring externally for UWOSA positions.
