Results of UWOSA Ratification Vote

Members of the University of Western Ontario Staff Association (UWOSA) have ratified a new collective agreement by a vote of 637-29 (96%). A tentative collective agreement was reached in the early morning hours of November 5, after an 19-hour bargaining session.

Details of the agreement will be released once Western’s Board of Governors approves the deal on November 16.

Members of UWOSA had been without a contract since June 30, 2010.

"This was a very long and difficult round of bargaining; however, the overwhelming support of our members encouraged and helped us achieve the best contract possible in these challenging economic times," said Stephanie Macleod, Negotiations Committee Chair.
