The University has released a new offer today. They have addressed issues of funding indexation to accommodate membership growth. Job security for Unit 2 contract faculty is still far from what the Union is demanding. The University is offering 10 new full time appointments for full time tenure positions, with improved job security for Unit 2 members. A total increase of 10% over three years. The latest Union proposals were about 28% over two years.
This seems like a fair offer. I would have liked to see better job security proposals especially for post doctorate contract faculty, however.
I doubt the Union will accept this.
