Collective Agreement U Of M

Despite UMFA`s calls for binding arbitration by third parties, an agreement was reached on Sunday through mediation. The agreement has yet to be ratified by UMFA members. UMFA members will vote this week on the ratification of this agreement. U-M has collective agreements with various labor organizations representing selected employees who perform certain roles on the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, Flint, and Michigan Medicine campuses. These collaborators perform tasks that are essential to the university`s teaching, research and patient care tasks. These include nurses, police officers, phD instructors, artisans and more. The deal offered by the U of M includes a one-time $1950 COVID-19 scholarship and a zero percent salary increase, in line with provincial requirements. UMFA also reserves the right to take legal action against the effects of the unconstitutional law on the sustainability of public services and to guarantee wage discussions during negotiations on the upcoming collective agreement. In a press release, UMFA President Michael Shaw said: “Prime Minister [Brian] Pallister and his government continue to interfere in collective bargaining.” This agreement is far from the initial request of the UMFA, which called for “a fairer salary grid, a modest increase in salaries for the year 2020-21 and additional help during the pandemic for people with dependent missions”.
