Collective bargaining with CUPE 3906

The University and representatives of CUPE Local 3906 (Unit 2) have begun discussions on a renewed collective agreement. CUPE 3906 (Unit 2) represents approximately 380 sessional faculty and sessional music faculty at McMaster.

“The University highly values the many contributions sessional faculty and sessional music faculty make to McMaster,” says Charlotte Yates, dean of Social Sciences and chair of McMaster’s bargaining team. “Our goal is to successfully reach an agreement that reflects the roles of sessional faculty, while being respectful of the University’s financial reality and the province’s economic environment.”

Both parties have several negotiating dates scheduled over the next month.
