University and MUSA Reach Accommodation Agreement


Agreement on Accommodated Positions

To avoid potential conflict on the line, by that we mean psychological and emotional, plus to avoid future recriminations, we would require the following agreed upon procedure.

1. Photo-identification that would be readily identifiable for the period of the labour action.

2. That before commencing work, the persons occupying the accommodated positions would report to an assembly location where they would be accompanied by a MUSA picket captain.

3. Any MUSA member normally occupying one of the designated accommodated positions who decides not to cross the picket line will not be disciplined. They may be replaced by an alternate qualified person of the Employer's choice who would act in the place of the person in the accommodated position during the job action.
